I agree about "Les Noces". I've only seen it in the "Paris Dances Diaghilev" (with Elisabeth Platel, Kader Belarbi, Jean-Yves Lormeau and
Francoise Legree), and wish to see it on stage someday. The Ballet du Nord in Roubaix
(France) will dance it within a few weeks, in a Stravinsky program also including
Maryse Delente's (their director) version of "The Rite of Spring".
The Paris Opera Ballet also restaged Nijinska's "Les Biches" and
"Le Train Bleu" a few seasons ago. I haven't seen "Les Biches", unfortunately it was staged only
one season, but their "Train Bleu" (blue train) was filmed in a "Picasso and dance" program (Picasso had made the stage curtain). It's a much lighter
ballet than "Les Noces", pleasant to see (with a lovely Nicolas Le Riche as "le beau gosse" in the video), but not as great as "Les Noces".

Just thought it deserved a mention since its written with love for dance.
