Accompanied by stunning images from some of todays leading photographers such as Mario Testino, Lord Snowdon and Mary McCartney, it chronicles Darcey from her early years through to her final performance of MacMillans Song of the Earth at the Royal Opera House in 2007. Along with images of her on stage and in costume, there are intimate behind-the-scenes photos of rehearsals and preparation. Darcey provides a fascinating insight into the ballet world, with personal anecdotes and memories of some of the most important moments in her career.
