IIRC this has been available in the UK for a while as a double bill (DVD) with Violette et Mr. B. Nice to have it released in teh US R1, though.

It's good to know about this. Thanks, Dale.

In the Night (Monique Loudières, Manuel Legris)

Coached by Jerome Robbins

This episode was shown last weekend on Classical Arts Showcase in our area. It was marvelous to watch Robbins working on nuances of movement. I'm looking forward for the chance to watch the other coaching sessions as well.

My favorite scenes in the documentary are Vladimir Vasiliev in street clothes coaching Loudieres in "Giselle".
