if you check out the dramatis personae at page 144, there they state how the ballet was organised. Seems the main cast was only actors, but they had a separate ballet and singing group. Apparently the servant and the 4 physicians are also dancing in the first entry, the quack is singing in the second entry with a group dancing around him. So some minor characters were in the ballet.bluechien wrote:Sonia, do you know if they would have used extras for this or was that little core cast expected to be able to do ballets as needed?
Must have been something to watch back then.
