Great Performances PBS: Dance in America presents Lar Lubovitch's Othello "recorded on stage at the San Francisco Ballet. "Desmond Richardson, one of America's premiere dance talents, performs in San Francisco Ballet's production as Othello, with Yuan Yuan Tan as Desdemona and Parrish Maynard as the treacherous Iago... Emil de Cou leading the company's orchestra and Oscar-winning compsoer Elliot Goldenthal ("Frida") lends an errie score based on the Italian tarantella..."

In the New York metro area it will be shown on Channel 13, on Wednesday, June 18th at 9:30pm. :D

I can't believe it; we (Chicago area) are actually getting this on the same date (June 18 9:30pm). We are also finally seeing the ABT Born to be Wild on both June 29 at 3:00pm and June 30 at 2:00am (though I have already purchased the video).

Wow! We'd better make sure Treefrog hears about this and hope she's sitting down when she does! ;)

Great news!:)

I think that this might be the first San Francisco Ballet video available, at least in the last number of years.

You're surprised you're getting it in Baltimore! We are getting it in Scranton, PA TWICE! in one week, Tuesday night, after Duetto (which has been getting nasty reviews on the opera websites), and again on Sat. night. We'll have to pay for it with endless hours of Yanni, Church, and all the rest.

This was a tremendously exciting hour and a half. It began at 9:30 and the time flew by. I could not believe the beauty of this work - incredible dancing by everyone, Yuan Yuan danced like she
was weightless, and the Othello - my God! And the score was so
great - and the sets. What a marvelous piece of work - and my station, which just infuriated me a day earlier by showing those two tenors in "Duetto" singing a bunch of awful songs and then begging for money, is going to show "Othello" again on Saturday and they didn't ask for a cent. I am taping this ballet.
