In her book, "Dancing on my Grave", Kirkland writes of a "Live From Lincoln Center" performance of herself and Baryshnikov in "Theme and Variations"; also on the program was Bujones in the "Don Q" PDD. Does anyone know anything about this Video?

You can watch this recording at the NY Public Library. It's an amazing performance of "Theme".
