The great stars of the 20th centurySold by Opéra National de Paris Topics
DescriptionWith its short careers and multiple creations, the world of dance is both ephemeral and extraordinarily intense. Everything is played out in the precise moment when the dancer's body moves, the performer having this double role of heir and permanent creator. From the time of the Ballets Russes to the most contemporary creations, Gérard Mannoni paints portraits of fifty stars who made the history of dance in the 20th century.
For each, he retraces the main stages of his life and his career, while analyzing the specifics of his art. A wonderful introduction to the history of dance, illustrated by a selection of original photographs.
