Rodeo and Billy the Kid were both filmed for PBS' Dance in America (or was it Live from Lincoln Center?). But again, a rights and/or money issue would explain why so many of those programs haven't been released on dvds yet.

It seems these days that the problem is also the old Ballets are not performed.
which is such a shame. Some of them would appear rather dated, but if they were brought back into production costumes and scenery could be revised, bringing them up to date.
It is very refreshing when you see a new Ballet that is worth going to see,certainly speaking for myself, I get tired of the same old thing. I am going to Paris this month to see Oneguin, which I have never seen before. That was why I went to see Les Dame aux Camelias last year, which has now been released on DVD with Stephane Buillion and Agnes Letestu, this was really wonderful as I saw them dance, and it was being filmed live at the time. One I will purchase I think.

It is a Massine ballet performed by Ballet Theater in 1943 with a cast that included Massine, Nora Kaye, Andre Eglevsky and Rosella Hightower, Sadler's Wells did it in 1947 with Alexander Grant, Fonteyn, Somes and Shearer.
