The Faber Pocket Guide to Ballet
Deborah Bull and Luke Jennings
This essential pocket guide to this enduringly popular art, is a perfect introduction to over eighty of the most performed ballets today.
Spanning nearly two centuries of classical dancing, this indispensable book begins in the Romantic era of the 1830s, moves through the great Tchaikovsky ballets of Tsarist St Petersburg, to the inspirational work of Diaghilev at the beginning of the twentieth century and the luminous neo-classicism of Balanchine. Ashton and Macmillan are covered in depth, and the most recent ground-breaking work brings us up to the present day.
