It has produced celebrated dancers, from Margot Fonteyn to Darcey Bussell, and one of the richest repertoires in ballet. This book is a critical account of its first 75 years, tracing the Royal Ballet's growth and cultural importance. Giving full attention to dance style and performance standards, Zoë Anderson puts The Royal Ballet repertoire in context, showing its place in ballet history and in the history of British arts. She looks at the bad times as well as the good, examining the controversial directorships of Norman Morrice and Ross Stretton and the troubled redevelopment of the Royal Opera House. Finally she records the Company's triumphant form as it celebrates its 75th anniversary under the directorship of Monica Mason. An indispensable book for all lovers of ballet."@en ;
