Nijinsky by Richard Buckle( Book )

52 editions published between 1971 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,676 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nijinsky--one of the towering figures in the history of ballet--was unique as a dancer, interpretive artist and choreographic pioneer. His breathtaking performances with the Ballet Russe in the seasons from 1909 to 1913 took western Europe by storm. His avant-garde choreography for "L'Après-midi d'un faune" and "Le Sacre du printemps," which provoked battles in the theater and the press, is now regarded as the foundation of the modern dance. Drawing on personal conversations with countless people who knew and worked with Nijinsky and many years of far-flung and painstaking research, Richard Buckle has written what is surely destined to become the definitive Nijinsky biography.-from dust jacket
Diaghilev by Richard Buckle( Book )

39 editions published between 1979 and 1993 in 5 languages and held by 1,262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first full-length life of Diaghilev to appear for nearly forty years. Much new material about the great Russian creator of modern ballet, who was also the unquestioned arbiter of European taste in the first quarter of this century, has come to light since the publication of Haskell's and Lifar's biographies. Richard Buckle has acquired an insight into the mind of Diaghilev, which enables him to write with authority on his hopes and fears, his triumphs and disasters during the quarter-century which may well go down in history as "the Diaghilev era" in art. -- Provided by publisher
