    To many people, Lucia Chase (1897-1986) was the American Ballet Theatre, and her reign as the queen of American ballet lasted for more than four decades. It was Chase who brought Nureyev, Bujones, Kirkland, and eventually Baryshnikov to ABT. Under her leadership, the company worked with such legends as Agnes de Mille, Anthony Tudor, Jerome Robbins, and Twyla Tharp. Her drive, ambition, tenacity, and money kept the doors open even during the lean years. A dancer when the company made its debut in 1940, she was artistic director for an unprecedented thirty-five years, from 1945 to 1980.

With most of their people transported west, fewer than a hundred remained hidden in the heart of the Everglades, members of the only tribe never to surrender.

    Il filosofo romano scrive all'amico Lucillo, e gli racconta l'animo umano. Le sue caratteristiche, i suoi vizi e le sue virtù. Come un esploratore dei sentimenti più intimi, e un gran conoscitore delle numerose sfaccettature che compongono i pensieri e i comportamenti degli esseri umani, Seneca indica una via possibile per vivere in armonia con se stessi e con gli altri, attraverso la riscoperta della consapevolezza di quello che davvero conta.

Ihre Stories zeugen von einem unsteten Leben voller Brüche.

    Barbara Jefford is the hilariously outrageous Lucia in this BBC Radio 4 dramatisation of the novel by E.F. Benson. Lucia is the uncrowned queen of 1920s provincial society, the Everest of social climbers and the most delicious of snobs. In the pastoral serenity of the village of Riseholme, Lucia and her unforgettable cronies face up to an Indian guru, spiritualism, and a cultural usurper.
