dc.description.abstractLudwig Minkus is accredited with composing several ballets in late 19th century Russia and Paris that were great successes, yet the life and music of Minkus have faded into obscurity, and little is known or written about him. The purpose of this thesis is to bring Minkus somewhat to the forefront from two perspectives - from both music history and dance history. Through analysis of scores, recordings (of music and dance), contemporary accounts, interviews, and personal experience as a dancer, I plan to shed light on the source of his popularity - including the means by which Minkus consistently produced music that so well accommodated choreography - and why his works remain standards of the ballet repertoire all over the world.
