Synopsis

Stories from the Ballet by Margaret Greaves

From Coppelia to Giselle, from The Sleeping Beauty to Swan Lake, here are eight stories of famous ballets. Romantic and Classical themes take their place beside folk and fairy tales, while much-loved comic ballets provide the fun. Each retelling is true to the ballet performed on stage, offering young readers a sparkling introduction to the world of dance.

Reviews
