9780879103118: Round About the Ballet

Anyone who has ever seen a live performance of ballet knows the thrill of seeing larger-than-life figures on stage dancing in ways that seem superhuman. What are these dancers like beyond the footlights? How have they acquired such artistry and technique? What are the joys and difficulties in sustaining their careers? What dreams would they like to fulfill as performers? Round About the Ballet profiles the stars of the top New York City ballet companies: American Ballet Theatre and the New York City Ballet. Selected by Roy Round, one of the world's leading dance photographers, the dancers profiled represent the very best in ballet today. The dancers are brought to life through stories of their lives, real-life interviews, and the stunning photographs of Roy Round. This book is for ballet fans, dance students, collectors of photo books, and people who are curious about the performing arts. This is a book that, once opened, will be hard to put down.

About the Author:

Londoner Roy Round is one of the most acclaimed and experienced photographers in dance. Among the ballet stars framed by his lens are Rudolph Nureyev, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Natalia Makarova, Sir Anthony Dowell, Dame Margot Fonteyn, and Dame Antoinette Sibley.

William Cubberley is the publisher of the Practising Law Institute in New York. An enthusiastic and knowledgeable dance lover for many years, Mr. Cubberley is a lawyer and former Political Affairs Officer at the United Nations.

Joseph Carman, former soloist with ABT and the Joffrey Ballet, has moved with great success to the field of dance writing. His articles appear frequently in the Arts and Leisure Section of The New York Times, as well as Dance Magazine, Stagebill, The Advocate, Playbill, The Village Voice, and Dance International.

Review:

"Recommended for all dance and photography collections." -- Back Stage, February 2005

"[S]traightforward...the subject seems to emerge from luminous, unpunctuated space...the challenge of pure movement is palpable." -- Dance Magazine, March 2005

"[The dancers] come to life in the prose..." -- Village Voice, January 2005

The book should be in every home where dance is revered. -- Marian Horosko, Dancer Magazine, March 2005

[A] balletomane's dream...a book of photographs that really reveals the art of individual dancers...[with] penetrating interviews. -- Francis Mason, WQXR, February 10, 2005

[P]rovides a real sense of these lively artists who spend so much time expressing themselves in movements rather than words. -- New York Sun, December 2004
