Oberon Books 450pp £25 order from our bookshop

Anybody with an interest in ballet needs to read this book. Sir Peter Wright is about to turn ninety and is still active in the world of ballet. His varied career as a dancer, choreographer, producer and manager spans the entire postwar era. He’s worked everywhere, he’s known everybody, and although he’s never held any of the top positions or created work of lasting importance, his influence and reputation in the business are second to none.
