DELIBES (1836-91) made his name as a successful composer of Ballets and short Comic Operas.
The run of the Ballet Coppélia in Paris was tragically interrupted, in the summer of 1870, by the outbreak of the Franco-Prussian War. Twenty years ago this Ballet, with Genee as principal dancer, was highly popular in London at a theatre that has just ceased to exist, the Empire.
