The lush, sweeping story of a remarkable dancer who charts her own course through the tumultuous years of early twentieth-century Europe. Beautifully blending fiction with fact, The Chosen Maiden plunges readers into an artistic world upended by modernity, immersing them in the experiences of the era's giants, from Anna Pavlova and Serge Diaghilev to Coco Chanel and Pablo Picasso. From their earliest days, the Nijinsky siblings appear destined for the stage. Bronia is a gifted young ballerina, but she is quickly eclipsed by her brother Vaslav. Deemed a prodigy, Vaslav Nijinsky will grow into the greatest, and most provocative, dancer of his time. To prove herself her brother's equal in the rigid world of ballet, Bronia will need to be more than extraordinary, defying society's expectations of what a female dancer can and should be. The real-life muse behind one of the most spectacular roles in dance, The Rite of Spring's Chosen Maiden, Bronia rises to the heights of modern ballet through grit, resilience and fervor. But when the First World War erupts and rebellion sparks in Russia, Bronia—caught between old and new, traditional and ground-breaking, safe and passionate—must begin her own search for what it means to be modern. From the Trade Paperback edition.

The Tragical History of the Life and Death of Doctor Faustus, commonly referred to simply as Doctor Faustus, is an Elizabethan tragedy by Christopher Marlowe, based on German stories about the title character Faust, that was first performed sometime between 1588 and Marlowe's death in 1593. Two different versions of the play were published in the Jacobean era, several years later. The powerful effect of early productions of the play is indicated by the legends that quickly accrued around them-that actual devils once appeared on the stage during a performance, "to the great amazement of both the actors and spectators," a sight that was said to have driven some spectators mad.

A handbook on the tecnique of floor-barre conceived by Alex d’Orsay and written by the creator. A work on the floor expecially conceived for dance teachers and professional dancers which can also be used by amateurs interested in improving any tecnique, be it classical, modern or contemporary dance. The aims of this method are: a perfect alignement, an improvement of the turnout, a postural awareness, the strengthening of all the core and the back muscles. The work on the floor by Alex d’Orsay is structured as a dance class where all exercises constitute an effective instrument to improve the natural relashionship between movement, music and rythm. Manuale sulla tecnica di Sbarra a Terra creata da Alex d’Orsay, scritto da lei stessa. Un lavoro a terra dedicato sì ai danzatori professionisti ed agli Insegnanti di Danza, ma anche a tutti coloro che da amatori ne studiano una tecnica, classica, moderna o contemporanea che sia. I principali obbiettivi che si pone questo metodo sono: una postura correttamente allineata, l’allungamento della muscolatura, il potenziamento dell’ en dehors, lo sviluppo della percezione fisica dei movimenti, della concentrazione e della memoria muscolare del movimento, il rinforzo della muscolatura addominale e di quella di tutto il tronco, il rinforzo dei legamenti e l’alleggerimento dei muscoli sovraccaricati. Inoltre nella Sbarra a Terra di Alex d’Orsay, concepita strutturalmente come una lezione di danza, tutti gli esercizi costituiscono un’efficace strumento di conoscenza della relazione tra musica, ritmo e movimento.
