Format: Paperback
Reproduced directly from rare originals, chiefly in the collection of Parmenia Migel of the Stravinsky-Diaghilev Foundation, New York, the photographs provide a unique visual record of 100 dazzling years of dance. Highlights include Lock & Whitfield's superb study of Marie Taglioni (London, 1879); the legendary Nijinsky in Le Spectre de la rose (1911) and Petrouchka (1912); George Balanchine on holiday in Venice (1925); Pavlova displaying flirtacious charm in Rondino (1928); Dame Margot Fonteyn as the Firebird and, with Nureyev, in Marguerite and Armand (1963); plus superb portraits of the unforgetable Maria Tallchief and multitalented Jerome Robbins.

Noted writer-balletomane Parmenai Migel has enhanced the photos with informative captions including career highlights and anecdotal material. More than just a visual feast, Great Ballet Stars in Historic Photographs is a meticulously researched chronicle of the celebrated dancers and choreographers who profoundly influenced the course of ballet.

Original Dover publication, 248 black and white illustrations. Introduction. Index of Dancers. Index of Photographers.
