The Faber Pocket Guide to Ballet Paperback

Edited by Deborah Bull



This is the essential, easy-to-use classical ballet guide - spanning nearly two centuries of classical dance - with entries for more than eighty works from ballet companies around the world, from Giselle and Swan Lake to Cinderella and Steptext.

This new edition has been revised to include new ballets by Wayne McGregor, Alexei Ratmansky and Christopher Wheeldon alongside classics by Tchaikovsky, Diaghilev and Balanchine.

Features include: plot summaries; an analysis of each ballet's principal themes; useful background and historical information; and, a unique, behind-the-scenes, performer's-eye view.

You can dip in at random or trace the development of dance from cover to cover.

Written by former Royal Ballet principal Deborah Bull and leading dance critic Luke Jennings, this ever popular Faber Pocket guide is a must for all ballet-goers - regulars and first-timers alike.
