Hot off the Trapeze Press:

George Balanchine was just twenty-one when he created Le Chant du Rossignol, his first work for Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes. He was twenty-three when he triumphed with his first popular and critical hit, La Chatte.


He would choreograph dozens of pieces for the stage before he turned thirty.


Hodson and Archer have reconstructed five of the major works that were nearly lost to time.

Elizabeth Kiem has collaborated with the artists to produce Balanchine's Twenties, a series of five bijou books available exclusively through Blurb.
