These are tales of princes and princesses, of good fairies and bad witches, and, in Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker, the brave soldier and Clara - but does it happen, or is it a dream?
And there is the music - the lovely melody from Swan Lake, The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy and the waltzes and richly atmospheric passages painting, in sound, castles, forests, mists and lakes.
A perfect introduction to the ballet...

"The lively text is rich with detail and imagery." (AudioFile)
Wonderful oration. The addition of the music from the ballets greatly enhanced the stories and it was a pleasure to listen to this book. For anyone who loves ballet, this is a must.
