During thatMoreFlight of the Swan is the tale of a world-famous Russian prima ballerina touring in Puerto Rico in 1917. Because of extraordinary political upheaval at home, her troupe is forced to remain in the Caribbean for an eventful three months.

During that time, Madame falls desperately in love with Diamantino, a young local revolutionary, and their passionate affair threatens the stability - indeed, the very survival - of the small, intense, and highly competitive world of the corps de ballet. Narrated by Madames devotee Masha, Flight of the Swan explores the complexities of love and betrayal, of personal sacrifice for the sake of public art. Gradually Masha comes to recognize that in spite of what she sees as Madames propensity toward pretense and vanity, the prima ballerinas true love is dance, and she is prepared to forsake almost everything for it.

But Madames tenacious commitment to this noble ideal demands nothing less from her acolytes, eventually forcing Masha to question what choices she herself is willing to make when it comes to her own loyalties and loves, while raising the question of where true happiness lies.--BOOK JACKET.
