I still enjoy my video of Tennant with Nureyev in the NBofC production of Nureyev's Sleeping Beauty.

In fact, the television guide in the Globe and Mail actually had TWO different programs listed to air at the same time on the 22nd. Grr.
Thankfully there is Ballet Talk, and I also know that Bravo tends to air dance programs on Monday evenings. So...I'll turn in again tonight (this time the sattelite actually gives me hope that the Celia Franca show will air)....and hope for the best!
