"Dances at a Gathering", (Robbins) with Karel Cruz (Boy in Green)
"Nutcracker Snowfall Pas de Deux" (K. Stowell), with Milov

When he speaks about favorite roles, the clips are from Tetley's "Rite of Spring", "Prodigal Son", and "in the middle, somewhat elevated".
I love the petite allegro he does right after the Forsythe clip.
In the final montage, I recognized him in:
Mercutio (Maillot's "Romeo et Juliette")
"Square Dance" (male solo)
Boy in Brown from "Dances at a Gathering", with Chalnessa Eames (Apricot)
"One flat thing reproduced", with, I think, Jodie Thomas to the right.
"Symphony in C" 3rd Movement, with Kaori Nakamura
I think the Quijada piece, with James Moore to the right and Barry Kerollis to the left
I'm not sure what the last clip is from, where he's wearing the brown shirt and black tights.
The score is by William Lin-Yee.

I think this is Melancholic from Four Temperaments. The girls are Leanne Duge and Carli Samuelson.
Maybe Mark Morris' "A Garden"?

I'm not remembering in which ballet there was a Gorilla, lol.
"Prodigal Son" (Balanchine). I think the Father is Otto Neubert.
"Romeo et Juliette" - Romeo (Maillot). Jonathan Porretta (Mercutio) is to the right. I'm not certain who the Benvolio is to the left. My guess would be Josh Spell. Then Postlewaite and Carla Korbes (Juliet).
"Red Angels" (Dove)
"Dances at a Gathering" - Boy in Brown (Robbins)
"A Midsummer Night's Dream" - Oberon (Balanchine)
Not sure about the ballet where he's in black, but from the end credits, by process of elimination, it's by Todd Bolender
"Petite Mort" (Kylian)
"West Side Story Suite" (Robbins)
"Square Dance" - Man's Solo (Balanchine)
"3 Movements" (Millepied)

There are excerpts from three works:
"Petite Mort" with her husband Karel Cruz
"Jardi Tancat", alone, with the entire cast, and with Cruz
Tall Girl in "Rubies", with four of the male corps, the entire cast, and then in front of the curtain, with Noelani Pantastico and Benjamin Griffiths.

Something is affirmed for me as I watch Lindsi in this interview. She spoke of 3 roles that were transcending for her (see Helene's post above). Something went "click" in the universe as I watched these clips and I remembered how I felt as an audience member when she did each of these 3 roles. I've been a fan of Lindsi's for a long time, but particularly in each of these 3 roles, she created that magic I'm so addicted to. Yes, she has done other wonderful dancing over the years I've seen her at PNB, but I distinctly remember her performance in each of these 3 roles. Each of these times she went beyond herself into what those in the sports world often call "the zone". How wonderful and magical it is that at those same moments when Lindsi was transported, so was I in the audience. She knew it, and I knew it....in those very moments. My physics background tells me such magic is impossible, but it is none the less the existence of that magic has me return again and again for more. Thank you Lindsi for having the commitment and the courage to go to that place where magic defies physics

The ballets he doesn't identify himself are "In the middle, somewhat elevated" (blue unitard), "Swan Lake" (blue velvet), "Jardi Tancat" (beige shirt, brown pants), 4T's -- Phlegmatic (white shirt, black tights), "Slaughter on 10th Avenue" (all black), "Take Five, More or Less" (black, with Leslie Rausch in purple dress), "Agon" (more white and black), and "Silver Lining" (top hat and tails).
The brief snippet of "Romeo and Juliet" is Kent Stowell's "The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet".
