It was shown in the cinema at the Museum of London in 1981.

As part of this years celebrations of Pavlova moving into Ivy House it was shown at the British Film Institute with a piano accompaniment using themes from Auber's opera.

To supplement the exhibition at Ivy House on the history of Pavlova in which I wrote, co-curated and co-designed with Julia Weiner, we were fortunate to have the film running continuosly through the day on a sceen placed in the exhibition space.
