    Default French ballet

    Russia aside, France also has a ballet scene; or am I wrong? Did Ravel compose any ballet(s)? Any other still preformed French composer?

    Historically, the French used to include ballets within their operas.

    But Ravel wrote "Daphne and Chloe" and several others.
    Debussy wrote several as well.

    And many others.

    "Marco Spada" by Daniel Francois Espri Auber. a beautiful ballet, but rarely staged.

    There is a superb Bolshoi performance on Blu-ray and DVD. Here is a review - http://www.musicweb-international.co...rco_BAC413.htm
