A History of Ballet in Russia by Cecil Beaumont

Recommended Posts

I just received the following email from Dance Books in the  UK:

In these sultry days of summer, what better way to relax than being in a cool corner with a good book?

A good book you're unlikely to have read is Cyril W. Beaumont's A History of Ballet in Russia, first published in a small edition in 1930 at the then high price of 21/- (£1.05) and now reprinted for the first time by our friends at The Noverre Press. (If you're keen to own a copy of the original edition, there's one on offer on Amazon for £892.00.)

Most books on Russian ballet focus on the Petipa and post-Petipa eras, but Mr. Beaumont casts his net wider and earlier, covering the period from 1613 - 1881, with reports of much mayhem and murder.

It's a fascinating read, and as always you'll find full details of this book on our website:


I just ordered a copy: shipping is 6.98 GPB outside to "rest of world."
