In the Boston Globe, Christine Temin reviews Sleeping Beauty: A Legend in Progress by Tim Scholl.
‘Beauty’ open to interpretation - Russian ballet, born in royalty, is ever-changing
Quote:
....Scholl has written extensively about ballet and participated in the 1999 reconstruction of “Sleeping Beauty” at its birthplace, the Mariinsky Theatre. With this book, he’s made a substantial contribution to the relatively sparse literature on classical ballet, through an analysis of the triumphs and tangles of a single pivotal work, one of the few full-length ballets to outlive its 19th-century origins.

Sleeping Beauty: A Legend in Progress.
From Dancing Times

Tim Scholl. Yale University Press.
ISBN 0-300-09956-8. £25.00

Taking as his subject The Sleeping Beauty’s role in “shaping the history of Russian and Soviet ballet over the course of a century”, Tim Scholl’s study painstakingly tracks the fluctuating status of the ballet as it survived initial condemnation by tsarist-era critics to weather the vicissitudes of revolution and the rise of Stalinist totalitarianism.
