Sure to cause controversy among Diaghilev worshippers, Scholl's book asks questions that dance scholars need answered and provides the wide-ranging research and thoughtful synthesis to answer those questions. Perhaps, in addition to its great value for setting Russian ballet in this thoroughly researched, historical context, Scholl's book is important for stirring up questions that need to be pondered. Dance can use such constructive provocation.

In this rich interdisciplinary study Tim Scholl provides a provocative and timely re-evaluation of the development of ballet from the s to the middle of the twentieth century. In the light of a thoughtful re-appraisal of dance classicism he locates the roots of modern ballet in the works of Marius Petipa, rather than in the much-celebrated choreographic experiements of Diaghilev's Ballet Russe.

From Petipa to Balanchine : classical revival and the modernization of ballet
Write a customer review. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. A must-have for any serious student of ballet or the history of dance. The author is a first-rate scholar and his use of original material as source is well documented and researched. This book is worth having for it's bibliography alone.
The chapter notes are impeccable and the text is interesting and readable by anyone interested in dance or the journey of ballet to Russia and the US in the 19th and 20th centuries. I have enjoyed the work of Balanchine for most of my adult life, but until reading Scholl's work, I never felt that I had an understanding of what his historical contribution was and how it developed in an American context. The book is more readable than this review. The only negative is that all of the photos are from Balanchine's black and white ballets. Ballet -- History -- 19th century.
