Summary "This book focuses on the tours made by dancers from the Maryinsky Theatre from St. Petersburg to Helsinki, Stockholm, Copenhagen and Berlin in the early summers of 1908-1910. The star of the group was Anna Pavlova, for whom theses performances were a stepping-stone to an international career. The tours were organized by a Finnish impresario, Edvard Fazer, who at the time was running his own concert agency in Helsinki."--BOOK JACKET.
