From the blurb:

"Balanchine's ideas revolutionised ballet, extending the vocabulary of classical dance both through his teachings and through a series of great works, from his crucial collaboration with Stravinsky to his re-stagings of nineteenth-century classics, including the immensely popular Nutcracker.

"Even as he was championing classical ballet during the Thirties and Forties, Balanchine was expanding the possibiities of dance on Broadway and Hollywood ... his personal life was as highly charged as his professional life, involving five dancer-wives, including Broadway stars and great ballerinas ...

"In this loving biography, Robert Gottlieb chronicles the life and achievements of ballet's foremost choreographer. Drawing on his own involvement with the New York City Ballet and his relationship with Balanchine and many of his colleagues, Gottlieb has produced a compelling portrait of a vital man, one of the creative masters of the twentieth century."

Hardback book with d/j in near new condition (no inscriptions or price-clipping), published by Harper Press (London), approx 15cm x 21cm, 216 pages, b/w photographs, list of significant Balanchine works, biographer's notes on sources, and acknowledgements.
