Maurice Ravel collaborated with some of the greatest ballet directors, choreographers, designers and dancers of his time, including Diaghilev, Ida Rubinstein, Benois and Nijinsky. In this book Deborah Mawer explores these relationships and emphasizes the importance of the performative dimension in realizing Ravel's achievement. Indeed, she proposes that the composer's large-scale oeuvre can be viewed as a balletic undertaking. In so doing, the book adds significantly to current research interest in artistic production and interplay in early twentieth-century Paris.
