Ooops, jumped the gun blushing.gif .

 

I hope in a decade or so to do a year-long apartment swap and commute between the NYPL and the Museum of TV (or whatever it's called these days).

Not ballet: Martha Graham, Merce Cunningham, and Paul Taylor live and in their primes. 

 

Ballet: No dancer in particular, but I'd like to be transported back to the theater for the first performances of Giselle, La Sylphide (Bournonville's),  and the Sleeping Beauty to see what they really looked like and to feel what the house vibe was like when these works were really new.

A season of Balanchine's NYCB in the 1950's.   Not sure about the specific year.

I would definitely want to see some ballets that are forever out of reach to me (but nice to imageine what they might have been like). So many choices, but I'll start with Mr. B:

 

Cotillion (1932), Ballet Russes with Tamara Toumanova, and George Balanchine in the supporting cast

Caracole (1952), cast: Diana Adams, Melissa Hayden, Tanaquil Le Clercq, Maria Tallchief, Patricia Wilde, Andre Eglevsky, Jerome Robbins, NIcholas Magallenes

Seven Deadly Sins (1958), Allegra Kent, with Lotte Lenya singing the role of Anna

La Valse (1951), cast: Diana Adams, Tanaquil Le Clercq, Yvonne Mounsey, Patricia Wilde, Herbert Bliss, Frank Hobi, NIcholas Magallenes, Francisco Mancion...

Ashton's Illuminations with Tanaquil LeClercq, Melissa Hayden, Jillana, Jacques d'Amboise and others

 

And then there's ballets like Figure in the Carpet and Card Game that hold a certain fascination for me.

Would be fun to see Danilova before she left Russia, very early Balanchine too... Just to see his first attempts...

The early, gymnastic stuff would be fascinating.

Yes, Balanchine's "Young Ballet" works would be most interesting to see.

 

And, the Diaghilev Ballet Russes' Parade (by Cocteau, Picasso, Satie, and Massine)…

These are the only clips I've ever seen of the ballet (reproduced at the Joffrey Ballet with the help of Massine - I love the Chinese Magician's dance!).
