This book contains a selection of research papers presented at the International Interdisciplinary Symposium “Seventeenth–century Ballet: a multi–art spectacle” which was held at King’s College London on 7 August 2010. The purpose of the symposium was to act as an international forum for multidisciplinary research on seventeenth century ballet. As far as we are aware, this was the first symposium which is specifically aimed to bring together researchers from many disciplines including early music and dance, iconography, exoticism, neo–Platonism and European history. The ballets created during the period of High Renaissance are undoubtedly among the major masterpieces of the theatrical genre of the era, and this can be proved not only in terms of their popularity, but also of the high quality, craftsmanship and their variety in form. Emphasizing this diversity, the symposium focuses on the interplay and tensions between discourses, continuities and discontinuities, and competing images of the seventeenth century ballet in Europe.
