The Making of Markova: Diaghilev's Baby Ballerina to Groundbreaking Icon

'“She seemed to float and fly, as if the air was her natural element.” —The Economist “Her history as a dancer is absolutely unique. Diaghilev was crazy about her.” —Ninette de Valois, dancer with the Ballets Russes and founder of the Royal Ballet “Markova has danced Giselle so many times that she could undoubtedly do it in her sleep; what is so notable is that she never does. She is as fresh, as sensitive, as creatively alert as if she had never done it before.” —The New York Times'
