tylerls Posted November 25, 2005 Report Share Posted November 25, 2005 I just picked up a copy of Irina Baronova's autobiography after seeing an article about her in the local paper: Irina:Ballet Life and LoveIrina Baronova In the 1930s and 1940s, Irina Baronova was a world-famous ballerina. This is the vivid, funny and moving memoir of her extraordinary life. After a childhood spent in exile and poverty, she toured the world as one of the 'Three Baby Ballerinas', working with a dazzling array of famous names. But this is also a story of survival, heartbreak, loss and love. ISBN 0670028487 Publisher Viking Press Publication Date 26-Sep-2005 Pages 512 It looks like it'll be very interesting, especially considering her involvement in the Ballet Russes de Monte Carlo, work with Balanchine, etc. etc. I can't see it on Amazon yet, so maybe it's just been published in Australia at this stage. You can see the book listed at dymocks.com.au as an example. It looks like she's been doing the media rounds recently. There's an mp3 of a 46 minute radio interview here at the ABC Queensland local radio webpage Quote Link to comment
