9780140559057: Behind the Scenes at the Ballet: Rehearsing and Performing the Sleeping Beauty

For more than a hundred years, The Sleeping Beauty has been one of the worlds best-loved ballets, creating magic onstage. But what happens offstage? This comprehensive backstage tour takes you from the studio to the dressing room, from rehearsal to the final curtain call. Dynamic, full-color photographs capture the hard work of preparation and the splendor of the performance. "A fine introduction to this ballet." -- Booklist A longtime ballet photographer, Leslie E. Spatt divides her time between ballet companies in England, Germany, and Amsterdam, including the Birmingham Royal Ballet (England), whose performance is the basis for this book.

From Booklist:

Gr. 4^-6. Spatt, a dance photographer, offers a fully illustrated backstage tour of The Sleeping Beauty as performed by the Birmingham Royal Ballet. After retelling the story and introducing the principal characters, the text focuses on dancers taking classes and attending rehearsals as well as warming up, making up, and dressing for a performance. The camera switches from backstage to the audience's view for dozens of well-captioned photos showing highlights of the ballet itself, with the text describing the action and sidebars offering commentary on such aspects of the performance as mime and the "Rose Adagio." Full-color photographs on every page of the book show dancers and even the technical crew in action. A short history of The Sleeping Beauty and a glossary of ballet terms are appended. For older children, a fine introduction to this ballet. Carolyn Phelan
