U.S.A. 1996 Soft Cover NEW 0884010813 multiple NEW copies NO marks OVERSIZE extra shipping USPS Priority and International Topics Ballet; Ballet su?dois; Classical; Dance; ... France; Genres & Styles; History; Music; Performing Arts, Along with cutting-edge art, literature, and jazz music of 1920s Paris, there was also experimental new dance, exemplified by the Ballets Suedois, the "Swedish Ballet. " Choreographed almost entirely by Jean B?rlin but visualized by 32 painters from 11 nationalities, it boasted costumes and backdrops from the likes of Fernand L?ger, G?sta Adrian-Nilsson (GAN), Nils Dardel, and Gerald Murphy, with music by Erik Satie and even Cole Porter, in 23 ballets produced during the company's brief, brilliant existence. Illustrated with 78 archival photos and sketches and 67 color reproductions of posters and production paintings, this catalog is as much an art book as it is a dance history, with works seldom seen in over 80 years.
