1 edition published in 2015 and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ballets Francais features some of the most important proponents of modern French dance. Legendary ballerina Alexandra Danilova stars in Mademoiselle Fifi (1955), a delightful comic piece created for her and the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo, in the style of the wildly popular Gaîté Parisienne. The celebrated French ballerina Violette Verdy is partnered by Scott Douglas in a poignant Romeo and Juliet (1958), choreographed by the chief architect of modern French ballet, Serge Lifar, to the music of Tchaikovsky. Two of the major French dancer-choreographers of the post-World War II era are also represented: Jean Babilée, who performs in his charming and acrobatic Balance à Trois (1965); and Janine Charrat, whose Préludes Nos. 8 and 20, set to music from Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier, is danced by the French ballet star Claire Sombert (1965)."--Publisher's website
