Abstract La Fille mal gardée by Jean Dauberval, a pre-Romantic ballet first performed in 1789, is well-known among modern audiences. This article attempts to show that La Fille incorporates the theory and practice of Dauberval’s contemporaries, the dramatic theorist Denis Diderot and the playwright Michel-Jean Sedaine. For these three men of the theater, the mise-en-scène in their works contributes not merely to the visuality of the stage but also to its materiality, providing the physical bodies of the actors with the basis to advance the narrative of the drama through their acting technique. I document Diderot’s counterposition of coup de théâtre and tableau to develop my argument.
