Synopsis: With 69 photographs in text

From Library Journal: International superstar ballet dancer and choreographer Leonide Massine (1895-1979) created a body of work that has had a significant impact on this century's choreographic developments. Massine's symphonic or abstract ballets have been most influential, but certainly his skill in characterization, his elevation of the male dancer to an equal status with that of the ballerina, and his constant experimentations with regard to movements, music, and design set new standards for ballet. Massine was strongly focused on work, and his creativity was fueled by numerous personal and professional liaisons, the most notable with impresario Diaghilev. The late Garcia-Marquez (The Ballet Russes, 1990) was meticulous in his research, but, by his own admission, he fails "to capture the persona, the man's inner life," perhaps because Massine was so introspective. By the book's end, the essence of the artist eludes and baffles both the author and the reader. Still, in comparison with and as a complement to My Life (1960), Massine's guarded autobiography, this book will serve as the definitive record of Massine's career for some time. Recommended for all dance collections.?Joan Stahl, National Museum of American Art, Washington, D.C.
