About This Item

London: Dance Books Ltd, 1983 Near fine first edition of this description of the 1981 Sadler's Wells production of Swan Lake and how it evolved under the direction of Peter Wright. Very fascinating insider's view, explaining, for example, that the Wells had not done Swan Lake since 1970, so many of the company had not only never done it, they had never seen it. Further, Swan Lake always evolves: the original choreography has been lost and it is generally expected that a new production will have a new interpretation. Barbara Newman and Leslie E. Spatt talk to everyone involved to get an understanding of this process, including those in charge of costumes and sets. Profusely illustrated with b/w photographs. The book is near fine, clean bright blue boads with gilt lettering and clean crisp interior with no writing or marks. Good binding and corners. Dust Jacket has a few marks and dents and spine is a bit sunned. It is unclipped showing original price @ 7.95 pounds. Very nice book. See also "No Castanets at the Wellls," a vintage ballet novel for youth, also available at Sparkle Books.
