There were some back problems (she sent my husband to her back "fixer", which worked well) which limited her appearances from time to time.
I especially hold in memory her Swan and her Sylvia pas de deux with Patrick Bissell. Also her Lady Capulet with Ron Tice as Tybalt was the hottest ever in my experience.
She was not the sort of ballerina that drives crowds wild. She was one who took your breath away with her subtlety, beauty and eloquence. I remember Cynthia Gregory with a smile; I remember Magali with a sigh.

another vid on that frustrating list of telecasts YET to be put on the commercial market would be a 1984 telecast of ABT in Japan - on this bill that includes THE LEAVES ARE FADING, CORSAIRE & SYLIVA pas de deux, GREAT GALLOPING GOTTSCHALK, messac dances opposite cynthia harvey, partnered by ross stretton in SYMPHONIE CONCERTANTE.
Here's hoping that the camera for that broadcast was better at capturing GREAT GALLOPING GOTTSCHALK than the one for the "ABT in SF" broadcast on PBS (now on dvd). But I would like to see LAF, and SYMPHONIE CONCERTANTE with that ABT in Japan cast; I remember well their performces in L.A.. I remember Ms. Massac too--"long, liquid, musical" was a good description , and think I have a pair of her signed pointe shoes, though don't remember exactly when or how I got them.

as noted the leads are A. Mckerrow and K. Mckenzie, thus:
1] C. Kerimidas & J. Turjoman; 2] McKerrow & McKenzie; 3] C. Spizzo & M. Owen; 4] E. Kudo & R. Hill
