Sylvia DVD or VHS

I haven't been able to find anything on the internet. I don't even know if a full length tape has even been made.

It is lovely music, isn't it?
(If anyone knows of another version, of course, please post.)

the 'sylvia pas de deux' that balanchine originally made for maria tallchief and andre eglevsky (and recently restaged by american ballet theatre) is recorded on an a.b.t. tape w/ martine van hamel and patrick bissell but only on the commercial version of the tape, when the program that included this duet was shown nationally on US tv, 'sylvia' was cut for time constraints.
UK members of this group might make mention of the version created by david bintley for the birmingham royal ballet in '93, but i don't think it lasted long, and doubt that it was filmed for tv or tape.

Not entirely optomistic news... Thanks for the info. Sounds like you've been looking for awhile yourself, rg. I knew about the ABT version. Guess I'll have to settle for that for now.
Thanks again for the quick responses. If I come across anything I'll let you guys know. There is a place here in Los Angeles that tends to have copies of things no one else in the world has. I'll give them a try as well. FYI -- it's called Eddie Bryants. It's on Lankershim Blvd. in the North Hollywood area of Los Angeles, should anyone else be looking for something out of the ordinary.

Have you got a phone number (toll-free would be nice) and/or web site for them?
