In 1957 the English choreographer Frederick Ashton and the German composer Hans Werner Henze began to collaborate on a new ballet, Ondine. During the creation of the work Henze kept a diary of its progress and his thoughts on the choreography and the music. Here translated into English for the first time, the diary gives a major insight into the workings of the creators' minds during the composition of one of the twentieth century's major works of art.
