Pierrot strikes back: François Nivelon at Lincoln’s Inn Fields and Covent Garden, 1723-1738

Abstract:
John Rich employed the French dancer François Nivelon to perform at Lincoln’s Inn Fields theatre, and later at Covent Garden theatre, from late 1723 until 1733 and again from 1735 to 1738. Nivelon proved to be not only a fine serious dancer in the French style but also a very gifted comic, acrobatic and pantomimic dancer whose talents made him indispensable to Rich’s pantomimes. This paper examines the sometimes stormy artistic relationship between the two men, and the roles in which Nivelon danced for John Rich.
