The death of the internationally celebrated choreographer Antony Tudor made the ballet world aware of the importance of preserving his works to enrich future generations. Soirée Musicale, the first Tudor ballet to be made available in published form, will provide access to this delightful piece both to dancers and dance students as well as teachers, historians, researchers and scholars concernced in the art.
Soirée Musicale is a charming, lively piece well suited to classroom study as well as stage performance. Although technically demanding when performed up to full tempo, the dances allow for a degree of personal interpretation and expression which can surmount technical problems. In this book the full Labanotation score is accompanied by detailed study and performance notes, historical background and photographs which provide the flavour of this much-loved piece.
