About this book
The first biography for 40 years of the revolutionary ballet dancer Vaslav Nijinsky. Tying in with the 100th anniversary of Stravinsky's "The Rite Of Spring", this is a gripping tale of talent which redefined an art form, as well as madness, rivalry and the price of success, with stunning illustrations. Nijinsky's life was shadowed by schizophrenia and an intense relationship with his lover Diaghilev.
Tells the tragic story of ballet's great revolutionary, Nijinsky. In this book, the author examines a career defined by two forces - inspired performance and an equally headline-grabbing talent for controversy.
