Overview

This revised edition of David Vaughan's 1977 title by the same name remains the definitive chronicle of Ashton's choreographic career and includes a new final chapter and an updated chronoogy of work. Sir Frederick Ashton holds a place in British ballet that is comparable to Balanchine's in America. In this book, Vaughan traces Asthon's entire career, from his first ballet, presented as part of a 1926 London revue, through his work as a leading dancer and choreographer, to his role as Director of the Royal Ballet. Ashton created more than eighty ballets and innumerable smaller works, including dances for operas, musical comedies, and films. Each of his important ballets are described and analyzed in detail and most are illustrated.
