Vienna Waltzes-Peter Martins
Posted 06 August 2001 - 05:11 PM
There is a ballet that I've been trying to find on video for ages! It was broadcast on PBS quite a few years ago, and it featured Peter Martins in Balanchine's "Vienna Waltzes" ... It had music from Johann Strauss' "Tales from the Vienna Woods" as well as Richard Strauss' "Rosenkavalier", the latter of which was included in the more recent Balanchine Celebration. Does anybody know if a copy of this exists anywhere?
Thanks very much!

"Lincoln Center never sells any of their programs on tape. The shows are not produced as TV shows, but as "live coverage of a live arts event," and have broadcast rights for 1 telecast only. This is done so that each program only costs a few hundred thousand dollars to produce, rather than several hundred, and allows Lincoln Center to produce 4-5 shows a year rather than just 1. Stations immediately erase their tapes after the single broadcast. sorry for the bad news."
This is an FYI for anybody else who is interested in past Live from Lincoln Center broadcasts. I'm so sad!

It would be interesting to know what the parameters are for viewing materials in the research library.
