Présentation de l'éditeur :

'He achieves the miraculous,' the sculptor Auguste Rodin wrote of Vaslav Nijinsky. 'He embodies all the beauty of classical frescoes and statues'. Like so many since, Rodin recognised that in Nijinsky classical ballet had one of the greatest and most original artists of the twentieth century, in any genre. And his life is the stuff of legends: a story of great beauty and great tragedy.Immersed in the world of dance from his childhood, he found his natural home in the Imperial Theatre and the Ballets Russes, and a powerful sponsor in Sergei Diaghilev - until a dramatic and public failure ended his career and set him on a route to madness. As a dancer, he was acclaimed as godlike for his extraordinary grace and elevation, but the opening of Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring saw furious brawls between admirers of his radically unballetic choreography and horrified traditionalists.Though 2013 marks the Rite's centenary, Nijinsky's story has lost none of its power to shock, fascinate and move. Adored and reviled in his lifetime, his phenomenal talent was shadowed by schizophrenia and an intense but destructive relationship with his lover, Diaghilev. 'I am alive' he wrote in his diary, 'and so I suffer'. In the first biography for forty years, bestselling author of Maharanis Lucy Moore examines a career defined by two forces - inspired performance and an equally headline-grabbing talent for controversy.

Revue de presse :

'Superb biography ... Moore recounts [Nijinsky's story] with scholarship, grace and imagination' Sunday Times

'Mesmerising ... enthralling ... atmospheric ... meticulous and intelligent ... Moore's descriptions of Nijinsky's eventual isolation from his sister, rejection by his wife, and how he remained locked in insanity for the rest of his life are unforgettable.' Daily Telegraph

'His final curtain was cruel, and Moore lowers the darkness with great tenderness.' Guardian

'Excellent' The Times

'A captivating biography' FT

'Highly readable and absorbing' -- The Lady

'Highly intelligent, lucidly presented and consistently absorbing...a clear and objective picture of a tragically wounded genius' Literary Review

'A compelling, well-researched narrative' Spectator

'She has done what all good biographers should do make us want to see Nijinsky in action, to behold him dance' -- Irish Independent

'Highly intelligent, lucidly presented and consistently absorbing…a clear and objective picture of a tragically wounded genius' -- Literary Review
