Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jane Rosenberg's delightful retellings for children of the greatest ballets--whether the tales are read as introductions to a ballet or to relive a production already seen, art and text combine to give a clear understanding of plot, scene, and character. Young children in particular will enjoy reading the stories--or having them read--both as lovely fairy tales and to help them share in the magic of a real dramatic performance.

Here are the romantic arabesques of Giselle and the classical attitudes of The Sleeping Beauty. Sets, costumes, and lighting are re-created to give the true flavor of authentic productions and to approximate, as fully as possible, the experience of attending the ballet oneself.

Synopsis:

"A beautiful guide. . . . The richly detailed watercolor illustrations . . . evoke the mood and atmosphere of each ballet."--Prima Ballerina
