I wonder what videos of ABT are currently available commercially, particularly those of performances from 1980 and before.

If anyone is able to provide such information, or knows where I could find such a list, I would appreciate his / her response!!!!!!!

You can find several at Amazon. Access the site at the upper right hand corner of this page. (I'm sure you know that anything you purchase helps Ballet Alert! Online financially, but only if the site is accessed in this manner.)

Thanks everybody!!!

Gianninna, I do know that clicking on amazon.com thru the ballettalk banner helps ballet.alert, but I have noticed that amazon's prices are rather on the high side. Plus they charge about USD 7.- for shipment to Uruguay.

Anyway, I always look at amazon first to compare, because I want to help ballet.alert!!!!!!!
