I should add that, as someone noticed earlier here, Farrell was specifically talking about the classic tutu...I personally have seen few of those at MCB ("Bourree Fantasque", "Pas de Dix" , "Tarantella" , "Nutcracker" and "Diamonds"...and that's it, (if mem. serves, which I'm doubting lately). In Havana Mme. gave me "Waltz Academy", "Theme and Variations" and "Sylvia PDD" , so my personal recollections goes just up to 8 works. Oh!, yes, CCBM did "Stars and Stripes PDD" also during last season, so counts now goes up to 9 Now, the new MCB season will add up, with "S.in C" and "Swan Lake", which I'm especially intrigued. Note: I found very interesting the pic of Mme. Danilova in the early Coco Chanel classic tutu design for her muse in Apollo, along with bathing caps and everything-(Mme. stated that Chanel felt horror for human hair in full display). Mme. Alonso's Apollo kept the caps, but had the now standard loose museline costumes.
BTW, thanks a lot for all the info provided.
