9781846686191: Nijinsky

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

"She never loses sight of why Nijinsky's art was so great. The result is a captivating biography."—The Financial Times

Arguably the greatest dancer of the twentieth century, Vaslav Nijinsky (1889–1950) transformed the world of ballet. On stage he blazed a trail as the first male star of the modern era, with critics and audiences hailing him the God of the Dance. In his brief career as choreographer, his astonishing modernist compositions—most controversially, Le Sacre du printemps (The Rite of Spring)—had the same dramatic impact on ballet as the work of Pablo Picasso had on painting.

His turbulent relationship with the powerful impresario Sergei Diaghilev not only propelled him to stardom but made him into a gay icon before such a thing had been dreamt of. But when Nijinsky escaped Diaghilev's control by eloping with a starstruck young follower of the Ballets Russes, their personal and professional association was shattered. Unable to work, Nijinsky's world fell apart.

In the first full-length biography of Nijinsky for over thirty years, drawing on his diaries for the first time, acclaimed historian Lucy Moore introduces this troubled genius and the world around him to a new generation, providing extraordinary insights into the creative process and personal relationships of one of the great cultural figures of the twentieth century.

Lucy Moore is a writer and broadcaster whose books include the bestselling Maharanis. She lives in London England.

Review :


Lucy Moore had not written about dance until this book, but her research and notations are meticulous, and beyond that, her command and authority of describing performance, historical context and Nijinsky’s life of triumph and defeat.” -New York Journal of Books

Description du livre Profile Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. État : New. Main. Language: English . Brand New Book. He achieves the miraculous, the sculptor Auguste Rodin wrote of dancer 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. Immersed in the world of dance from his childhood, he found his natural home in the Imperial Theatre and the Ballets Russes, he had 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. 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, Lucy Moore examines a career defined by two forces - inspired performance and an equally headline-grabbing talent for controversy, which tells us much about both genius and madness. This is the full story of one of the greatest figures of the twentieth century, comparable to the work of Rosamund Bartlett or Sjeng Scheijen. N° de réf. du libraire AA99781846686191
