Possibly the best loved of all ballets are “Giselle”, “La Bayadère”, and “Swan Lake”. Known as the White Ballets, they each tell stories of ethereal maidens costumed in floating white, who seem to be lovely creatures suspended somewhere between heaven and earth.
Rajka Kupesic, who was classically trained as a ballerina, has retold the stories and set them against her breathtaking art to create a book to cherish.
