Italian Ballet Plot Synopses, 1816-1933

75 ballet plot synopses; chiefly Italian and from the latter half of the nineteenth century; one item each in French and English. A ballet synopsis fulfills a function similar to that of a libretto for an opera. That is, it gives the story-line and actors in the ballet, and would have been purchased by ballet goers. All items individually cataloged as a numbered series. A separate database inventory was also created for the collection.
