40502 - La Source
40505 - maybe Davidsbunlertanze?
...
and many of Serenade, of course, pictures from different eras.....including 04, which is in front of the theater formerly known as the State Theater.

Here's a pic of La Source. I think 40502 is Raymonda Variations, but I couldn't find a photo of corps costume for comparison.
40505 looks to me like a Midsummer fairy from Titania's retinue.
40504 is definitely not outside the DHK/NYS Theater. It looks like a church to me. The facade of the theater is flatter -- less relief -- and several shades lighter. Also check the pavement -- definitely not part of the Lincoln Center campus, in any stage of the renovation (so far, at least). There are no risered steps so close to the building. Also, I don't think it's Serenade. Dancer's skirt looks too short and too full.

Yes! You're right about "Raymonda" I do get those pinky/Frenchy costumes mixed up. (But I should have heard those snare drums in my head.) And about the theater and about Midsummer's, etc!

40501 are the remade karinska tutus for GOUNOD SYMPHONY - the originals were even more pungent gold and rose - and had more ball-fringe trim, on the hems. the originals showed up in i forget which Balanchine ballet (after his death) for a preformance at SAB. E.Gorey identified them then for me, as he adored them. the re-built tutus were 'tamer' than the originals.

indeed, the ensemble in RAYMONDA VARIATIONS is in pink; the leads, blue.

Thanks, cinnamonswirl. What, I wonder, were they doing in the gardens at Old Westbury?
