Title: Dancing in Petersburg

How reliable was Mathilde Kschessinska?  Should she be taken at face value?

(Also, any other good books about pre-revolutionary Russian ballet?)

Other books: "Imperial Dancer" by Coryne Hall 2005, also about Kschessinska, and "Theatre Street, Reminiscences of Tamara Karsavina" autobiography, 1931, E.P. Dutton.
Enjoy!
