Overview

In this deliciously evocative new volume, Nancy Goldner returns to offer in-depth discussions of twenty more of George Balanchine's ballets. As in the critically acclaimed Balanchine Variations, Goldner's focus is not on history or biography but on the dances themselves: the technique, the coordination with music, the storytelling, and the evolution of Balanchine's style.

This encore performance features provocative and insightful descriptions and analyses of a group of works spanning forty years (1941-1981) and includes profiles of Ballet Imperial, Bugaku, Coppélia, Divertimento No. 15, La False, Symphony in C, and Union Jack, among many others. Inspiring, exquisite, and thought provoking, More Balanchine Variations is both a delightful meditation on and an essential critical examination of some of the twentieth century's most extraordinary works of art.
