Eva Evdokimova is doubtless one of the greatest ballerinas of the 20th century.
The book describes the dancer's life, assesses her art, and supplies numerous
illustrations of key moments in her career. It studies training at ballet schools
in Munich and London, her apprenticeship in the corps de ballet in Copenhagen,
her rise from soloist to prima ballerina at the Berlin opera, her maturation with
the London Festival Ballet, and finally her stardom in many guest performances all
over the world. Special attention is payed to her winning competitions in Moscow
and Varna, and her being with the Kirov Ballet in Leningrad. It also analyses her
interpretations of Giselle and Swan Lake. Interviews with some of
her fellow dancers, such as Peter Breuer, who shared the stage with her in
Coppelia and Romeo and Juliet, provide further insight into her art.
