Sale price£29.95


Although the techniques of classical ballet were invented by French and Italian masters two hundred years ago, the Russian Ballet refined these techniques, thus enhancing its already superb performances. In 1738, the first professional school of dance opened in St. Petersburg. During the 18th century, the Russian Ballet became known for its tragic and its comic ballets. The Russian Ballet reached its apogee during the 19th century. The second half of the century was marked by the collaboration of Petipa, the French choreographer, with the Russian composer Tchaikovsky. In the early 20th centuy, Diaghilev delighted audiences in the West by presenting his Ballets Russes with supremely talented choreographers, dancers, compers and set designers. This book offers an encyclopedic overview of the entire history of the Russian Ballet, written by a team of scholars.
