This visually stunning publication celebrates a unique collaboration between two of the UK’s leading cultural institutions, the National Gallery and The Royal Ballet. Together they commissioned three contemporary artists – Chris Ofili, Conrad Shawcross and Mark Wallinger – to work with international choreographers and composers to create three new ballets inspired by Titian’s paintings Diana and Actaeon, The Death of Actaeon and Diana and Callisto. As well as designing all the sets and costumes, the artists also produced entirely new works in response to Titian’s masterpieces for a show at the National Gallery. The book tells the story of this extraordinary, complex project from conception to stage and gallery. The artists’ notebooks, sketches and other material from the studio are reproduced to show how they evolved their initial ideas into working designs. Numerous views of the dancers’ rehearsals, installations and production work, and dozens of unseen photographs of the performances themselves, take the reader behind the scenes to see the many processes and people involved in transforming the artists’ vision into a finished production. All three creative teams offer through interviews and personal statements their own reflections on the project and on working with very different art forms. An introduction by National Gallery curator and originator of the project, Minna Moore Ede, explains how it came to fruition and how both aspects of the collaboration unfolded. A foreword by Dame Monica Mason, outgoing director of The Royal Ballet, completes the volume.

Review:

So compelling that you find yourself totally absorbed within its pages for hours at a time... Page after stunning page of production photographs and rehearsal images from each of the ballets awaits you, printed on lusciously thick paper. This book is a real treasure. --Ballet News

A book that will excite dance fans because its numerous images are so beautiful --London Dance

One of the most extravagantly interesting collaborative projects ever seen at Covent Garden ... Some kind of history had been made, some benchmark set for the future ... the dance event of 2012 --Guardian
