Noverre et la diffusion de ses oeuvres à Bruxelles
Jean-Georges Noverre (1727-1810), un artiste européen au siècle des Lumières
Jean-Philippe Van Aelbrouck
Noverre never worked in Brussels, but some of his ballets were regularly restaged at the Théâtre de la Monnaie. Choreographers such as Lescot, Felicini, Saint-Léger and Neuville were inspired or even imitated their master, with glory, indifference or failure. However, Noverre did spend some time in Brussels in 1793, trying to reach his fatherland on a journey back from London. With no success, according to a notarial deed discovered in the Kingdom’s General Archives in Brussels.
