49 editions published between 1754 and 2004 in French and Undetermined and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This three-volume work on dance history describes dance from its origins through the court fêtes of Louis XIV. Volume one stresses the importance of studying the theories of all the arts and covers the dance history of numerous ancient civilizations including Greek, Roman, Turkish, and Egyptian. Volume two describes the renaissance of the arts and the origins of ballet to 1610. Volume three focuses on dance in the court of Henri IV and the establishment of French opera. Cahusac borrows heavily from other writers, especially Philippe Quinault. Although by twentieth-century scholastic standards, Cahusac's interpretations may be problematic, the work formed the foundation for much of the writing on dance history until the twentieth century

Les Boréades by Jean-Philippe Rameau( Recording )

11 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in French and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This mythical tale of a young queen, Alphise, determined to abdicate rather than contemplate an enforced marriage to a descendant of Boreas, is nothing less than highly-charged. Her forbidden love for Abaris is reciprocated, but seems hopeless until his divine origins are revealed, whereupon darkness is turned to light and Boreas's dingy domain is suffused with flowing colours, both literally and metaphorically

Zoroastre : opéra by Jean-Philippe Rameau( Visual )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in French and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Making full use of Drottningholm Theatre's unique 18th-century baroque theatre machinery, as well as his deep creative understanding of the profound drama of the work, stage director Pierre Audi creates a production of Zoroastre that completely accords with the spirit of Rameau. True to the form of the tragédie lyrique, choreographer Amir Hosseinpour's dances perfectly match the weight and meaning of both plot and music. The ensemble, Les Talens Lyriques reinforced with musicians from the Drottningholm Court Theatre Orchestra and Chorus, is expertly and passionately led into the musical stratosphere by musical director Christophe Rousset. This intensely dramatic production is captured live in vibrant High Definition video and true surround sound."--Conteneur
