Darcey Bussell

This book celebrates the career of Darcey Bussell, one of the greatest English ballerinas of all time. Accompanied by stunning images from some of today’s leading photographers such as Mario Testino, Lord Snowdon, Patrick Demarchelier and Mary McCartney, it chronicles Darcey from her early years through to her final performance of MacMillan’s Song of the Earth in 2007. Along with images of her on stage and in costume, there are intimate behind-the-scenes photos of rehearsals and preparation. Darcey provides a fascinating insight into the ballet world, with personal anecdotes and memories of some of the most important moments in her career. It features her now famous performances in ballets such as Swan Lake, Cinderella, Giselle, Manon, The Nutcracker and The Sleeping Beauty. A must for lovers of ballet and dance, as well as being a beautiful book to own and treasure.
