Art, I was wondering if there is any info in this book not found in Mathilde's autobiography (if you had the chance to read that)? Thanks.

Helen

Helen,

Imperial Dancer" is definitely NOT a re-hash of Dancing in Petersburg.  
The book is the result of 3 years research, with help from people in 11
different countries and 14 public and private archives, just for starters.
Amongst other new material, it includes entries from Nicholas II's
diaries from 1892-94, provided by GARF and never before published in English.  

Her own memoirs were a fantasy,  this is what really happened.  It  takes
the story right up to her death in 1971, including Mathilde's efforts to
contact her relatives in Russia.

The book sounds wonderful. Is this book for sale in places like amazon, Alibris etc. or is this exclusively a EuroHistory book?

The book is not really  supposed to be out just yet.  Eurohistory received advanced copies, all of which we had the author, Coryne Hall, autograph.  I believe we have two copie sleft of this advance release.

My book came yesterday morning. It kept me in my seat all night. What I ended being most  interested in was her relationship with other famous Ballarina's. Pavlova,Karsavina,Preobrajenska. It was  fascinating.
