In the words of poet, author, and editor Louis Untermeyer (1885 - 1977), "Ballets are stories with music but without words. The dancers express what is happening in pantomime, by movement and gesture. However, in telling these stories I have put words into the mouths of the characters." So this marvellous, magical collection of ballet stories came to be. Handsomely illustrated by Alice and Martin Provensen, Untermeyer weaves stories adapted from great ballets. They are: 1, The Wood Nymphs (Les Sylphides); 2, Ondine (Undine); 3, Billy the Kid; 4, Graduation Ball; 5, The Firebird; 6, The Sleeping Princess (Sleeping Beauty); 7, Petrouchka; 8, Children's Games (Jeux d'Enfants); 9, Bluebeard; 10, Swan Lake; 11, Prince Igor; 12, Coppelia; 13, Giselle; 14, Rodeo; 15, The Golden Cockerel (Le Coq d'Or); 16, The Rite of Spring (Le Sacre du Printemps); 17, Phantom of the Rose (Le Spectre de la Rose); 18, The Nutcracker (Casse Noisette); 19, Scheherazade (The Arabian Nights), and, 20, Fancy Free. A treasury of tales by a master storyteller. Bookseller Inventory # 008142
