In this rich interdisciplinary study Tim Scholl provides a provocative and timely re-evaluation of the development of ballet from the 1880s to the middle of the twentieth century. In the light of a thoughtful re-appraisal of dance classicism he locates the roots of modern ballet in the works of Marius Petipa, rather than in the much-celebrated choreographic experiements of Diaghilev's Ballet Russe.
Not only is this the first book to present nineteenth- and twentieth-century ballet as a continuous rather than broken tradition, From Petipa to Balanchine places works such as Sleeping Beauty, Les Sylphides, Apollo and Jewells in their proper cultural and artistic context.
The only English-language study to be based on the original Russian soures, this book will be essential reading for all dance scholars. Written in an engaging and elegant style it will also appeal to anyone interested in the history of ballet generally.

About the Author:

Tim Scholl is Associate Professor in the Department of Russian at Oberlin College, Ohio. He is a frequent contributor to Ballet Review.

Review:

." . . the most trustworthy and readable work to emerge on the sources and progeny of St. Petersburg's ballet. Sure to cause controversy among Diaghilev worshippers, Scholl's book asks questions that dance scholars need answered and provides the wide-ranging research and thoughtful synthesis to answer those questions."
-Don Daniels, "Ballet Review
"Tim Scholl approaches his subject from a fresh point of view that will surely excite enthusiastic approval in some readers and violent disapproval in others ... Perhaps, in addition to its great value for setting Russian ballet in this thoroughly researched, historical context, Scholl's book is important for stirring up questions that need to be pondered. Dance can use such constructive provocation."
-"Dance Chronicle
"In this reevaluation of Russian classical ballet, Russian literature scholar Scholl examines the Russian ballet's classical revival in the first decades of this century, using the notion of retrospectivism.' Rather than a comprehensive history "From Petipa to Balanchine looks at several landmark works of Petipa ("Sleeping Beauty) and George Balanchine ("Apollo and "Jewels)."
-"The Drama Review, Winter 1995
"A definite yes."
-"Dance Teacher Now
