Harold George Scott captures the most memorable moments of Lelia Hallers
career with lavish illustrations and photographs. A pictorial biography of
one of the twentieth centurys most notable ballerinas, Lelia
documents the career of the only American honored as premire danseuse of
the Paris Opra. Lelias experience in the world of dance takes her
from beginnings in New Orleans to Germany, Spain, France, Italy, the
Netherlands, England, and back to New Orleans, where she opened Studio de
Danse. On these travels, she danced alongside other great dancers--such as
Italian ballerina, Carlotta Zambelli--and trained under Russian ballet
master, Nicolas Legat.
