Souvenir Brochure Australian Ballet 1980 Season Sydney Opera House
Alexandre Dumas, born Dumas Davy de la Pailleterie, 24 July 1802 – 5 December 1870), was a French writer. His works have been translated into nearly 100 languages, and he is one of the most widely read French authors. Many of his historical novels of high adventure, including The Count of Monte Cristo, The Three Musketeers, Twenty Years After, and The Vicomte de Bragelonne: Ten Years Later were originally published as serials. His novels have been adapted since the early twentieth century for nearly 200 films and Ballets.
One of Australia’s greatest dancers, Marilyn Jones, was Artistic Director of Australian Ballet at that time, and the work was commissioned from André Prokovsky, who adapted Dumas’ novel for the stage. Music by Giuseppe Verdi was arranged by Guy Woolfenden.
Principal Artists that season were Dale Baker, David Burch, the incomparable Kelvin Coe, Paul de Masson, Michela Kirkaldie (brilliant as Milady), and Gary Norman. Leonid Kozlov and Valentina Kozlova were the Guest Artists.
