Recent additions to stock include:<P>1. <B>Covent Garden, the untold story, by Norman Lebrecht.</B><P>At the end of the Second World War, despite Britain's poverty, money was found to create a national opera and ballet company. Half a century later, with Britain at a peak of prosperity, the Royal Opera House was pushed to the brink of bankruptcy.<P>Norman Lebrecht reveals for the first time the rise and fall of the Opera House, using privileged access to key players and private archives. He uncovers fresh aspects of Fonteyn, Nureyev, Callas and Solti, and seeks to discover how England rose from heroic poverty to heartless wealth.<P><BR>2. <B>Bakst, the art of theatre and dance, by Elisabeth Ingles.</B><P>Despite his importance to the dance world, there have been surprisingly few books, particularly in recent years, about the work of Leon Bakst. This new, large format book, handsomely fills the gap.<BR>It contains nearly 170 full colour reproductions of Bakst's set and costume designs, interleaved with a discussion of the artist's life and work.<P><BR>3. <B>Dance Therapy Collections, number 2, 1999.</B><P>A collection of papers developed from presentations and workshops in the Second National Dance Therapy Conference in Australia, in 1997. Topics covered include Dance movement therapy with adolescents, Movement and dance therapy in head injury, Dance therapy with adults who encountered sexual abuse in childhood, and Dance therapy and aboriginal dance.<P><BR>On the same page you'll also find details of several <B>new DVDs</B>, including the first DVD issue of a much-loved Kirov programme, which includes Chopiniana, Markitenka (La Vivandiere), and Paquita, with stellar casts including Asylmuratova, Zaklinsky, Lezhnina, Pankova, and Ruzimatov. Completely new to DVD is a Nederlands Dans Theatre recording of works by Jiri Kylian, including Falling<BR>Angels, Six Dances, No More Play, Sweet Dreams, and Petit Mort.<P>And if you don't yet possess a DVD player, you should give the acquisition of<BR>one serious consideration: the players are getting cheaper and cheaper, and both<BR>sound and picture quality are streets ahead of the video equivalent.<P>All these items may be ordered from our web site catalogue by going direct to:<BR> <A HREF="http://www.dancebooks.co.uk/new.shtml" TARGET=_blank>http://www.dancebooks.co.uk/new.shtml</A> <P>or you may send orders by email to orders@dancebooks.co.uk, <BR>by telephone to (44)(0) 207 836 2314, <BR>by fax to (44) (0) 207 497 0473, <BR>or by post to<BR>Dance Books Ltd., <BR>15 Cecil Court, London WC2N 4EZ, UK.<BR>

The Covent Garden book shall be added to my (growing) collection. It looks quite interesting. I'll have to give that dvd player some thought. More technical goodies to clutter the house with. Of course, if it has a warm surface to lie on like my moniter here, one of my cats will surely love it.

For those who haven't read them already, the Daily Telgraph had extracts from the Lebrecht Covent Garden book over 3 days. Here is the link to the relevant topic in Issues.<P> <A HREF="http://www.criticaldance.com/ubb/Forum3/HTML/000117.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.criticaldance.com/ubb/Forum3/HTML/000117.html</A>
