Balanchine TV documentary 1/14
Posted 06 January 2004 - 01:54 PM
I want to bring to your attention an important documentary program about George Balanchine that will air on public television. This 2-hour documentary was made shortly after Balanchine's death in 1983 and features many excerpts from his ballets and other footage relating to his life and career. It is broadcast again nationally in observance of Balanchine's centenary, with thanks in part to Barbara Horgan, Balanchine's long-time personal assistant and now Trustee of The George Balanchine Trust.
The following information is from The George Balanchine Foundation website at www.balanchine.org. You can view local [Seattle] airing details at http://www.kcts.org/...sp?N1=AMMS&ch=9.

is spoken, magnificently yet unobtrusively, by the actor Frank Langella. The opening lines are particularly great.
