Was Hans Beck's "The Little Mermaid" notated or filmed?

I have Ivor Guest's "Victorian Ballet Girl", which is about Clara Webster. I'll look for Fanny Cerrito, and I hope there is one about Lucille Grahn.

I still think your book would be interesting to read.

Has anyone else seen the photos of Fanny Cerrito in the March issue of POINTE MAGAZINE?

I remember seeing photos of Taglioni. She looked as though she were at the end of her dancing days, or maybe retired.

I wonder if Cerrito too is at the end of her performance years in those two photos.

She is certainly different then the romantic image portrayed in the Chalon and Bouvier lithographs.

I would love to see real photos of Elssler and Grahn and Grisi. Does anyone know where these exist?

I just checked Alibris, and both of the above books are available there, plus several others on the romantic ballet! There were a number of copies of the Migel book available.

The websites for rare books are Alibris and Bibilofind, which is part of Amazon. (Links sent to you via IM, since I can't seem to do that here.)

The Balletinas is by Parmenia Migel, published in 1972 by Macmillan Co.

Another book you would like is The Romantic Ballet, from Batsford Colour Books. (B.T. Batsford, LTD) Intro by Sacheverell Sitwell. It is a small book, published in 1948. I also found that in a used book store. It's mostly just the lithographs, with some text. But lots of wonderful pictures of the lithographs.

Unfortunately, I think it's probably out of print. But, the good news is, I found a copy in a second hand book store a couple of years ago. I had a copy from years ago, maybe 70's, but it sort of mysteriously disappeared when it got loaned out, so I was most delighted to find this copy. You might try Amazon, and there is another site that has old books, and it was listed here on the board somewhere, but I have forgotten now what it was called. I might have it bookmarked....will check.

There's an 8some reel in Mark Morris's "A Garden" -- pretty simple, but VERY fast -- pas de basques and dos-i-dos, and it's very tricky getting through the middle to the other side....... they're just flying --

it's in the "Courante" section

3 more performances this week at SFB

And again, back to Cerrito.....
