Balanchine & the Lost Muse: Revolution & the Making of a Choreographer - $24.95
Balanchine and the Lost Muse is a dual biography of famed choreographer George Balanchine and his close childhood friend, ballerina Liidia (Lidochka) Ivanova, in the crucial time surrounding the Russian revolution. Tracing the lives and friendship of these two dancers from years just before the 1917 Russian Revolution to Balanchine's escape from Russia in 1924, author Elizabeth Kendall sheds new light on a crucial flash point in the history of ballet-one where politics and art meet in legendary St. Petersburg, both culture and nation struggling to reconfigure themselves in the wake of the birth of modern Russia. 304 pages.
