Philippe Gaubert's 1940 ballet score Le Chevalier et la Damoiselle is recorded for the first time.

This world premiere recording of Gaubert's 1940 ballet Le Chevalier et la Damoiselle (The Knight and the Damsel), captures the last and reputedly finest of his symphonic creations. It's in the tradition of such late Romantic French ballet scores as Roussel's Bacchus et Ariane and Poulenc's Les animaux modèles.

In two acts, the story takes place during the Middle Ages, and concerns a beautiful princess under a spell that turns her into a doe each night. She can be freed from the magic only by meeting a man who will "make her know suffering."

Q&A with Anthony Huxley by Gia Kourlas in Time Out New York.

You're small for a male dancer. How have you come to terms with your size? At NYCB Iíve been able to dance great things considering my height. I was worried I would have to do jester roles all my life. I tried to focus on becoming more of aÖ

Leading man? Yeah. I think I am fortunate with my proportions that I look maybe a little taller than I am. [Laughs] I never really focused on trying to do tricks. I focused more on having a style, a stronger technique and a clean line.
