Once upon a time, there were these little two Russian boys, that taught us mere mortals to love ballet... They were Nureyev and Barishnikov! And dispite all the other great ballet dancers, from all the countries in the world, we, mere mortals, could not look at any of them... only those two!!!
One day, probably thinking that this was not funny anymore, God gave us Roberto Bolle!!! And we, mere mortals, came to know a ballet master, a fashion icon, a perfect figure, and a fairy tale story to go with it!
Bruce Webber captured all these (and a few other traits!) of this modern demi-god, in all its speldour and glory! The book is marvelous, but to fully understand WHO Bolle is, see him dance... and then bow, bend, and pick up the jaw that you just dropped!
