BALANCHINE – Celebrating A Life In Dance is a must for every ballet fan! This 256 page coffee table book overflows with eye candy photographs and prose about the greatest choreographer past, present, and perhaps future. It goes best with a latté, cheesecake (like you’ll need it with all the cheesecake photos), and the DVD Elusive Muse! There are a veritable plethora of gorgeous frozen moments in time of Suzanne Farrell. The woman is a goddess!! The photography is so good, if you look hard enough, the pictures will move! At the end of Elusive Muse Suzanne Farrell sums up her entire life with “There are no ‘if onlys’ in my life.” The below book and DVD live up to that touching quote: http://www.amazon.ca/exec/obidos/ASIN/1559498455/qid=1082854321/sr=1-54/ref=sr_1_0_54/701-5355135-6105122 http://www.amazon.ca/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00005KA78/qid%3D1082854393/701-5355135-6105122
* The coffee table book boasts so many delicious pictures-it’s almost drinkable! Kudos to photographer Costas Cacaroukas. I have one question: “How can you take a bad photo of goddesses like Suzanne Farrell, Darcey Bussell, Merrill Ashley, and many other beauties of the New York City Ballet?" Yummmmm!!!
