9789514110313: Canon and Beyond: Edvard Fazer and the Imperial Russian Ballet 1908-1910 (Academia Scientiarum Fennica Humaniora, 354)

Canon and Beyond explores the Russian ballet's first appearances in northern Europe and Germany in the early twentieth century. By looking beyond the canonical dance history and bringing in source material from the archives in northern Europe, the book offers a new insight into the history of Russian ballet in the West.

This book focuses on the tours made by dancers from the Maryinsky Theatre from St. Petersburg to Helsinki, Stockholm, Copenhagen and Berlin in the early summers of 1908-1910. The star of the group was Anna Pavlova, for whom these performances were a stepping-stone to an international career. The tours were organized by a Finnish impresario, Edvard Fazer, who at the time was running his own concert agency in Helsinki.

Laakkonen examines the local dance scene in these cities and places the reception of the Imperial Russian Ballet in a larger framework of music, theatre and the visual arts. She shows the contemporary audiences' fascination with the character dancing and the virtuosity of the Russian dancers, and connects the discussion on ballet with the emerging modernism in dance.
