For fans of SFB, and choreographer Edwaard Liang ... very rare, complete footage. And nicely shot. Possibly coming from the company's archive of ballets.

Symphonic Dances (world-premiere)
Principals: Yuan Yuan Tan, Sofiane Sylve, Maria Kochetkova, Vito Mazzeo, Tiit Helimets, Victor Luiz

Soloists: Courtney Elizabeth, Dana Genshaft, Daniel Deivison and Issac Hernandez

Corps: Dores Andre, Nicole Ciapponi, Charlene Cohen, Jennifer Stahl, Sean Orza, Gaetano Amico, Luke Willis, Quinn Wharton


Distant Cries with Yuan Yuan Tan and Damian Smith (footage is a bit blurry, but still very nice to see)



From the NYCB website:

Distant Cries, an unusual pas de deux requiring two highly virtuosic dancers, begins and ends with a ballerina dancing in silence, alone in a spotlight. Her movements are lyrical, though sometimes sharp and almost awkward. As the music begins her partner comes forward from the dark at the back of the stage. Their pas de deux is fast, intricate, and ingenious. The choreography seems to suggest a relationship between the dancers, but it is not clear whether the relationship is prickly, tender or both. The woman repeatedly hides her face with her hands; from what she is hiding remains a mystery.


Somewhere in Time with Yuan Yuan Tan and Damian Smith (the aspect ratio of the video is incorrect, so we get a squashed version)
