George Balanchine's the Nutcrackerby Joel Meyerowitz, George Balanchine
A publishing event of the first order, this exquisite volume brings together the work of two undisputed masters: George Balanchine, the choreographer who changed the course of modern ballet, & Joel Meyerowitz, whose luminous work places him in the forefront of American photography. Balanchines definitive version of The Nutcracker, danced by the New York City Ballet, was released as a feature film in 1993. Meyerowitzs photos, taken during the film production, capture all its movement, elegance, & rich character; his text, a beautiful retelling of the famous story, is as timeless & magical as the ballet itself. A volume to treasure.
