    Story

    For more than 400 years, the art of ballet has stood at the center of Western civilization. Its traditions serve as a record of our past. A ballerina dancing The Sleeping Beauty today is a link in a long chain of dancers stretching back to 16th-century Italy and France: Her graceful movements recall a lost world of courts, kings, and aristocracy, but her steps and gestures are also marked by the dramatic changes in dance and culture that followed.

    Paul Krasner says: "Was sad when it ended"
    "How a bad narrator can kill a book..."

    Story

    Jennifer Homans history of ballet is outstanding! Beautifully written and well documented ...
    Alas, who pick that narrator…?
    Kristen Potter is appalling! she systematically butcher the pronunciation of every single foreign names, which the book is full of since the history of ballet starts mostly in France and Italy. It’s a real pity and such a disservice that that wonderful book.
