For ballet fans, as well as those interested in the dance arts, A Life for Ballet offers a stunning look at the master Pierre Lacotte and his impressive career. Lacotte and his wife and dance partner, Ghislaine Thesmar, influenced the world of ballet with their work, including adaptations of romantic ballets such as Coppelia in Shanghai in 2002, Daughter of the Danube in Tokyo in 2007 and La Sylphide in 2011 in Vienna and Moscow. Thesmar was Prima Ballerina in La Sylphide in Buenos Aires and Tokyo and in Swan Lake with Ruolf Noureev, and has been an esteemed professor at the Opera de Paris.
