What an absolute wealth of detail this volume contains! There are colour and black and white photographs of every ballet personality to dance in Australia since the war and a comprehensive index for both performers and works. No dancer or performance of note is left out and, assuming all these facts to be correct, it could be used as an encyclopaedia of ballet in Australia.
