Discovering Balanchine by B. H Haggin( Book )

5 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book begins in June 1928 with B. H. Haggin in Paris at a Stravinsky gala of the Diaghilev company. It was Mr. Haggin's first article on ballet in "The Nation" in 1940 that btought him an invitation from Lincoln Kirstein to observe a Balanchine class and lunch with him. Mr. Haggin has since then continued to look, to see, and to write what he sees; and in this book his powers of perception and precise prose combine in a fascinating account of what he has observed and learned about the evolving genius of George Balanchine in the five decades in which he has attended performances of the ballets, watched reshearsals at which they were made, and talked with the man who made them. "Discovering Balanchine" also offers 135 photographs of the dancers in action in the ballets which are keyed to the text to enable the reader to see what the words refer to in "Apollo", "The Prodigal Son", "Concerto Barocco", "The Four Temperaments", "Orpheus", "Divertimento No. 15", "Agon", "Episodes", "Lieberslieder Walzer", "Bugagku", "Don Quixote", "Emeralds", "Rubies", "Diamonds", "Who Cares?", "Stravinsky Violin Concerto", "Chaconne", "Union Jack", and other ballets, to which are added four photographs of Balanchine in action at rehearsals. -- From publisher's description
