KIRKUS REVIEW

rose which is sometimes descriptive, sometimes stilted, the author narrates the stories of six ballets: Swan Lake, The Sleeping Beauty, Giselle, The Nut-racker, Petrushka, and Coppelia. There are no references made to the dance interpretations of the stories and there are no descriptions of the ballets themselves being performed. There is not any fresh value to the book as a guide to the ballet for the prospective viewer, and the narrations are not good enough to stand merely s a volume of good fairy tales.
