I know that there is at least one video of this production. Does anyone know if it is commercially available?

I am also interested in other Balanchine videos that are not included on the Balanchine library tapes from Nonesuch.

i don't know if any are commercially available but i know of two. one was a theatrical release made in 1966 with the farrell/villella/mitchell cast and the second was a television broadcast in 1986 with calegari/anderson/frohlich.

It exists also a version with Pacific Northwest ballet which passed on BBC channel, it's also a broadcast and not a movie, as the second version of NYCB.
