Maurice Sendak, RIPlong-time ballet lover, book illustrator, etc.

A more complete obituary from the Int'l Herald Tribune:
Although he is, by and far, known as an illustrator of children's books, he designed for opera and ballet in many locales. I recall his having designed a ballet for ABT during the Baryshnikov years, for example.

Rest in peace, Mr. Sendak.

a slip in the program read as follows:
"This ballet is dedicated to Maurice Sendak and gratefully acknowledges his work INSIDE OUTSIDE OVER THERE.
p.s. a survey of designers who worked w/ ABT during the first 50 years, compiled in 1990, which includes the Baryshnikov era, has no mention of Sendak. few know better the way the memory can play tricks over the years, but in this case the sense that Sendak worked with ABT seems to be a non-starter. Edward Gorey designed MURDER for a David Gordon production in the Baryshnikov years, but that may be neither here nor there.
