"Balanchine claimed modestly, 'God creates, I assemble,' remembers Merrill Ashley. But as Ms. Ashley explains, 'Everything he choreographed for us suited us perfectly, both technically and stylistically, while giving us the opportunity to show our joy of dancing throughout the ballet.' This book is about savoring that joy and sharing the pleasure of a Balanchine ballet. It is about the thinking Balanchine brought to the language of his dances. It is about the dancers who, in learning Balanchine's wordless language, make these dances real and alive. 'In his usual way,'writes Suzanne Farrell, 'Mr. B did not choose to explain Dulcinea to me verbally, but he began involving me in the larger process of putting together what was to be the company's longest, most complicated, and most expensive production to date." This book has 256 pages and is profusely illustrated. N° de ref. de la librería 062430

Acerca de


Balanchine, Celebrating a Life in Dance is a tribute to twentieth-century ballet’s most influential choreographer. Even before founding the New York City Ballet with Lincoln Kirstein, George Balanchine ha achieved international recognition as a dance innovator. Creating dances for his own company, Balanchine’s insights reinvigorated ballet by combining new forms with the traditional while dancing to contemporary musical scores. The works that emerged from this synthesis of styles brought new audiences to dance, as well as new meaning and relevance to the art of dance.

To commemorate the centenary of Balanchine’s birth, Balanchine explores fifty of the choreographer’s greatest works. A host of the most recognized names in dance have come together in this book to pay tribute to George Balanchine in essays that recall their personal experiences with "Mr. B." and offer analysis of his masterpieces.

Clive Barnes, Suzanne Farrell, Peter Martins, Kay Mazzo, Maria Tallchief, Helgi Tomasson, Edward Villella, and Karin von Aroldingen are among the many Balanchine proteges and notables in the dance industry who provide commentary on the ballets. Full-color and black-and-white photos from Costas accompany each essay.
