'La Sylphide: 1832 and Beyond' is the first English-language book dedicated to La Sylphide, one of the most enduring of the Romantic ballets in today's repertory. The contributors to this collection of essays are practitioners and historians of dance and music, and they bring to bear their expertise in a wide variety of specialties including technique, literature, folklore, iconography, dance reconstruction, historiography, and performance practice. Indeed, nothing less than this expansive reach is required to do justice to La Sylphide, an immensely popular musico-dramatic stage work inspired by literature, influenced by the visual arts and la mode; a work that made history with its choreography and its star performer, cropped up in countless productions (some heretofore little known) delighting its audiences and occasionally - for interesting reasons - dismaying them. The contributors are Ivor Guest, Debra H. Sowell, Sandra Noll Hammond, Matilda Ertz, Erik Aschengreen, Helena Kopchick Spencer, Ole Nørlyng, Alexander Bennett, Ornella di Tondo and Marian Smith.
