I was wondering if there is a recording available of Roland Petit's ballet, 'le jeune homme et la mort.' If anyone knows about one, I would really appreciate it. Thank you, brbropus39

there is a film of the dance, directed esp. for the filming by petit w/ nureyev and jeanmaire, but this has not been released on cassette tho' it has i THINK be shown on t.v. perhaps in europe.
otherwise the ballet is worked into 'white nights' at the start, but this version is really to frame the dancer/character baryshnikov plays in the movie and hardly shows the work complete.

Welcome brbropus39, and thanks for your response, rg.

I'm moving this to Anything Goes and deleting the duplicate post from Dancers. No cross posts, please (posting the same thing on more than one forum). It splits the discussion and can cause confusion.

Sorry about the duplicate post. I couldn't find my topic, so I assumed it didn't go through.
Thank you rg. I appreciate your response. -brbropus39
