3.0 out of 5 stars Wish it had been 102
Unfortunately one of the ballets I'm going to see, Mayerling , does not appear in the book. As far as I can tell the 101 ballets that are included are covered pretty well.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lesson in dance story from the best of teachers, 7 Jan 2001
This review is from: 101 Stories of the Great Ballets (A Dolphin book) (Paperback)
If one loves to speak about dance, the best of excuses to exercise this healthy and passionate hobby is just to name the tittle of one ballet. Then, almost by magic evocation, a thousand of memories shall grow easily telling of countless nights spent at the theatre, unforgettable anecdotes concerning one's favourite dancers, a whole catalogue of little precious reminiscences that any balletomane hoards in his/her luggage of life. Now imagine you are Mr. B. pretending to name one by one the arguments of 101 ballets, from A to Z indeed. Would you need anything else to condense a vast part of the magic of dance in a single book? Next best thing to watch a performance is to hear a storyteller showing us the argument of so many ballets known so well and permanently new-discovered, specially when Mr. B. so generously provides, as he does in his book, dozens of personal records that makes the lecture more enjoyable and exciting.
