About the Book
Valse Triste, one of the earliest dance creations of George Balanchivadze, seems a prophecy of tragedies and fame to come. Balanchine created dozens of ballets before reaching the age of thirty. Hodson and Archer have reconstructed five of the major works that were nearly lost to time. This bijou book is the third n the series Balanchine's Twenties by Trapeze Press.
