Item description for Vision in the Desert: A Dancer's Life by Vassili Sulich...

Vision in the Desert is a humorous self-portrait of an extraordinary dancer.

Vision in the Desert is the funny, delightful, and touching autobiography of Vassili Sulich, a joyful man who found he could not live without art, music, beauty, and most of all, without dance in his life. Follow Vassili's career as a dancer, from the children's performing group in a refugee camp in Egypt during World War II, to England, France, South America, Spain, Switzerland, and finally to America where he reigned for nine years as the principal dancer in the famed Folies Bergere. Feel his agony as he struggles to build a classical ballet company in the "cultural wasteland" of Las Vegas. Share his ecstasy when the Nevada Dance Theatre becomes the "crown jewel" of the arts in Nevada. Relive the times of turmoil and strife as his company grows in stature and gains rave reviews while touring nationally, and as Vassili gains fame as a choreographer for ballet and opera companies. Vassili Sulich is a man who brings joy, originality, vitality, sensitivity, and enthusiasm to everything he touches, and his autobiography is humorous and filled with gratitude and warmth. The book includes many stories of the famous people he met throughout his career as a dancer, but it is not a "tell all."
