Mazilier, the fertile writer of ballets, has turned into a piece of this class the fortunes of La Fonti, an Italian danseuse who flourished about a hundred years ago, and who after shining brilliantly at Florence died in misery. The ballet is represented at the Academic; where Made- moiselle Caroline Rosati represents the joys and sorrows of the heroine.
