Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A glorious photographic celebration of the life and career of Darcey Bussell—the incredible, world-class ballerina. Darcey Bussell is widely considered to be one of the greatest English ballerinas of all time. Her stellar career spanned two decades of magnificent dance where she worked with Dame Margot Fonteyn, observed an aging Nureyev, crossed swords with rival prima ballerina Sylvie Guillem, argued the finer points of technique with Sir Kenneth MacMillan and danced for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, as well as President Clinton and the president of China. Showcasing Darceys incredible career as well as revealing personal photographs from backstage, the studio, and even her home, this pictorial memoir is lavishly illustrated with the work of world-class photographers from Mario Testino, Patrick Demarchelier and Annie Liebovitz to Bryan Adams, Mary McCartney, and Johan Persson. The photos form a visual backdrop to Darceys story which is woven through the book in extended captions. This book gives a unique insight into the world of celebrity dance through the story of one of its most renowned exponents and is an irresistible offering for anyone who loves ballet, photography, and style.
