repertory in review available on ebay

This is one of the four or five essential ballet books--brilliant start to finish, with photos alone worth the price.

from what's been said in unofficial response to the question above, REP & REV will likely not be reprinted due to the many complications that would arise regarding the reacquisition of rights to the published materials used in the text, and even more, to the many photos.

Any chance it will be reprinted?

I'd like to see it revised and updated through 1983, to include the last few years of Balanchine's life, including the Baryshnikov performances. But that's dreaming, I think. I haven't heard of any plans.

For those looking for a cheap used copy, do check out Amazon's listings. Several are available for under $10 including shipping. I've had good experiences ordering via Amazon for used books (and don't forget to start with the Amazon box on this site): http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/0803773684/ref=tmm_hrd_used_olp_sr?ie=UTF8&condition=used&qid=1364130311&sr=8-1

Amen, California. I have always regretted that Reynolds didn't wait a few more years and include ALL of Balanchine's life, sigh. I'm afraid such a magnum opus, with such godawful legal complications now

and so many remarkable and rare photos, would *never* be reprinted, revised, etc. You would need a dance historian of Reynolds' caliber with exhaustive knowledge of NYCB, for starters.

Such a book was rare then; given what publishing now is, it is beyond impossible.
