Description
All of the jewels of the classical ballet tradition are collected in this volume, waiting to enchant you! The story of "The Sleeping Beauty" will whisk you away to the thorny castle where Princess Aurora awaits her prince, the comedy and confusion of "Coppelia" will delight you, and the magical adventures of Clara in "The Nutcracker" will entrance you. Love, laughter, betrayal, adventure and tragedy intertwine to create stories that will reach deep into your heart and dreams. And the drama of each story is vividly brought to life by prize-winning artist Rebecca Guay, whose personal love of ballet shines through in every sumptuous scene. This beautiful volume also features a brief history of classical ballet, as well as fascinating historical details of each dance's composition, choreography and early performances. Mesmerizing and richly informative to read, and irresistible to look at, The Barefoot Book of Ballet Stories deserves pride of place in the libraries of everyone who is captivated by the dance. Jane Yolen and Heidi E. Y. Stemple are mother and daughter. Jane has penned more than 250 books in her career. As a child, she also studied for seven years at Balanchine's School of American Ballet in New York. Heidi came to writing at the age of twenty-eight after pursuing a number of other careers, and she has not looked back since. Together, this mother and daughter team have already published eight books Book jacket.
