Through films and television this beautiful and dramatic art has been brought to a larger audience than ever before, capturing the imagination of young and old throughout the world. In this beautiful addition to the Blandford Colour Series, Robert Harrold- gives us a comprehensive but concise introduction and guide to ballet, bringing together the past and present in one volume. He takes us through the history of the art from the formal dances of the European courts of the Renaissance, through the Romantic era, famous for its ballerinas, to the twentieth century and the Diaghilev influence. A section on the ballet worldwide emphasises the truly international nature of dance — it has no language barriers — and describes the repertoires and talents of the famous companies, dancers and choreographers of the world. The text is accompanied by 48 pages of outstanding colour photography by some of the world’s best ballet photographers, which give the book sufficient scope to delight and instruct not only the young student taking first steps in classes, but also the general reader.”
