No other dancer has ever matched Leslie Edwards' amazing career with the Royal Ballet: more than sixty years of performing, starting in 1933 and continuing even beyond his official retirement in November 1993. In addition, for the first six years of his career he appeared frequently with Ballet Rambert, and later on was involved with outside events, often featuring Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev. And something much more than the length and breadth of his career marked it out as special: there was also the great admiration and affection which he won from audiences and his fellow artists. Over the years he had a respectable share of leading roles, many of them created by some of the great choreographers of the twentieth century - Frederick Ashton, Ninette de Valois, John Cranko, Robert Helpmann, and Kenneth MacMillan among others. However, he was seen more often in smaller parts, and he showed again and again that these can make just as vital a contribution to a ballet's total effect. It was not by chance that both de Valois and Helpmann remarked to him that he knew how to make something out of little material. Leslie Edwards was a remarkable and much loved man. This autobiography is peppered with the names of the many famous people with whom he worked and whom he befriended, but he relates a lifetime spent working with the Royal Ballet with charm, modesty, and good humour.

The fall of communism throughout Eastern Europe brought about major socio-political changes towards the end of the 20th century. Dennis Barnett and Arthur Skelton explore the effects these changes had on theatre and performance in Russia, the former Czechoslovakia, Poland, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, and the former Yugoslavia, while drawing clear parallels with theatre globally. This fascinating collection of articles describes the various factors contributing to the changes in theatrical performance, including the important move from government control to a capitalist, market-driven environment. The idea of art as business and a consumer product vs. art as a social prerogative or means for national dialogue is a common thread throughout the articles, many of which also look at the role of censorship during the communist era. This collection includes updated reports on vital cultural institutions such as the Moscow Art Theatre, the Bolshoi Ballet, the Sarajevo International Theatre Festival (MESS), and the Hungarian National Theatre Festival at Pecs. Also, a number of important theatre practitioners, directors, and playwrights, such as Boris Eifman, Du?an Kovacevic, Slobodan ?najder, Arpad Goncz, and Yordan Radichkov, are introduced to the Western reader. Organized according to country, the book presents both an inclusive and general overview of the subject--as well as specific in-depth examinations of the situations in each country--and includes a broad variety of perspectives: from native scholars to outside researchers, from personal memoirs to academic inquiries. The volume concludes with a bibliography, an index, and five informative appendixes listing works of some of the artists and companies discussed.
