Description

Antony Tudor's achievements in ballet choreography are comparable to those of Frederick Ashton and George Balanchine. Working with Marie Rambert at Sadler's Wells in the 1930s, he created "Jardin aux Lilas" and "Dark Elegies", before moving to New York shortly after the outbreak of the World War II. Considered an emotionally powerful ballet master, his works tended to have dramatic plots, with music drawn from a great variety of sources. His masterpieces, "Pillar of Fire", "Romeo and Juliet", and "Dim Lustre" did much to establish the American Ballet Theatre as one of the world's leading companies. This study examines the life and art of one of America's leading ballet choreographers.show more
