Congo to Covent Garden

In this memoir, Richard Glasstone draws on some sixty years of experience as a professional dancer, teacher and choreographer to record many different aspects of the history and development of ballet in South Africa, Holland, Turkey and China, as well as under three different regimes at London’s Royal Ballet School. The son of pioneering Anglo-Jewish parents, Richard was born in the former Belgian Congo and was exposed from early childhood to languages as diverse as French, Flemish, Swahili and Ladino. His love of languages has continued throughout his life, leading him to study Turkish, Dutch, Mandarin and Yiddish. His has indeed been a life linked by languages.
