A collection of stories from eight popular ballets, including Petrouchka, La Bayad+a6re, and Giselle, introduce aspiring dancers and ballet enthusiasts to these magical classical dances.
Illustrated with pastels, this handsome book retells the stories of eight ballets that children might see performed, including Coppelia, Giselle, The Firebird, The Nutcracker, and Swan Lake.
The writing is fluid, and the impressionistic artwork brings out the special quality of each piece.
Young dancers will particularly enjoy the general introduction by former ballerina Irina Baranova.
Following the story of each ballet are Baranova's personal "performance notes," usually her memories of the principal roles she danced with the Ballets Russes.
A useful, attractive addition to arts collections.
