Overview

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, and Joel Meyerowitz, whose luminous work, collected in such classics as Cape Light, places him in the forefront of American photography. Balanchine's definitive version of The Nutcracker, danced by the New York City Ballet, will be released as a feature film to theaters nationwide this holiday season. Mr. Meyerowitz's photographs, taken during the film production, capture all its movement, elegance, and rich character; his text, a beautiful retelling of the famous story, is as timeless and magical as the ballet itself. The Nutcracker is a holiday tradition no family will want to miss. For filmgoers, ballet fans, and lovers of fine books, this is the volume to have - and to treasure.
