There was a measure of sarcasm in it, but really, I thought most of it was quite charming.

I know some ballet fans who are horrified at the concept of poking fun at the classics and won't even give them a look. So part of the enjoyment depends on your point of view.

I live and dance in Minnesota, I'd be interested in what you find about this.

"I'd guess that the best bet for finding a tape, if one exists, is the Walker Arts Center in Minneapolis, or perhaps KTCA, PBS in the Twin Cities. I *think* it may have been done in association with "Alive from Off Center," the KTCA/Walker avant garde arts series."
If requested, he can check with a friend who worked at the Walker at that time.
and who, he tells me, now works for White Oak.
"I doubt, BTW, that it was at all anti-ballet, since it would have been acquired
for PBS by a person who is a close friend of Mikhail and impressario of arts at the Walker before PBS..."

The database is the most comprehensive list of dance films and videos in current distribution in the U.S., and includes videos in circulation around the world.
Dance On Camera database
I checked, but unfortunately came up with nothing. I still suggest contacting them, if it's available, they might have a clue. I can't imagine it doesn't exist in the NYPL's Dance Division collection... in fact, here it is: NYPL catalog search for Swan Lake Minnesota Interesting, it was produced by the late Joseph Papp! If all else fails, perhaps someone at teh Public Theater or NY Sheakespeare Festival would have some leads on how to contact his wife who presumably would have the rights?
