For any Toronto posters that are interested, BMV bookstore has just received some ballet videos from Kultur. They have never been owned, they were extras from the company. They have the 1st Erik Bruhn Prize, a mixed Kirov video, Fernando Bujones in Giselle, and a few others, all for $6.99 each. I just watched the Erik Bruhn prize last night. It features:
Martine Lamy & Owen Montague- black swan pdd (Bruhn version), solos from Blue Snake and The Rite of Spring
Viviana Durante & Errol Pickford- Don Q grand pas (they also performed a contemporary pdd which I cannot remember at this moment!)
Bonnie Moore & Wes Chapman- Sleeping Beauty pdd, Romeo and Juliet balcony pdd
Rose Gad Poulson & Lloyd Riggins- La Sylphide pdd, The Leaves are Fading pdd
hosts: Karen Kain, Glen Tetley
For that price, this video is a steal! I don't know how many copies are left, so go check it out at one of their two locations: Yonge & Edward (right beside the worlds biggest bookstore) or Yonge & Eglington.

Oh, Paquita - wish I had read this earlier! That's what I get for not checking this spot more often!

Will have to send my daughter hunting for videos!

You might still have some luck... Last week there were still some copies of Nureyev and Fonteyn in Romeo and Juliet and POB's Romeo and Juliet with Manuel Legris and Monique Loudieres at the Edwards St. location :flowers:

Just a note of thanks for you Paquita.....I was in the city myself yesterday and went to the store. Not a lot left, but I picked up an old video of Bujones and some footage of the Royal Ballet.

The Bujones one is ok, a bit dated though. For the price, not bad at all. I haven't seen the other one yet.

Thanks so much for the tip!
