Has anyone seen the Washington Ballet (pre-National Ballet of Washington) version, with Mimi Paul as the doomed Naiad?

Glebb, I think there may have been some discussion of Ondine when it was revived. You might want to do a search on the Royal Ballet forum. It was interesting that when the ballet was new, people felt that the music was unsuited to the theme -- expecting Ashton to make an old-fashioned, neo-romantic ballet. Fifty years later, many felt that the music and choreography were fine, it was the fussy designs that made the ballet seem dated.

I like Alexandra's recollection of dancers as waves. I am also curious about the famous shadow dance. The original Ondine was Cerrito, correct? I seem to remember reading that she did her own choreography.
We discuss many ballets here and "Ondine" seems a bit of a mystery. B)
I'll try to get more out of Lynn Wallis this spring.
