scans of 3 presumably related photos, on stage and in performance, admittedly dress rehearsal, of THE CARD PARTY.
the results are hardly clear photos but this little sampling shows Balanchine's ballet on stage in an era when what one got were mostly posed, studio shots. there seems to be an extra blurriness with regard to William Dollar's Joker, leading one to presume the camera snapped Dollar when he was at his most animated by Balanchine's choreography.
only the one, third in the selection here, came with a caption noting the dress rehearsal aspect.
Leda Anchutina was the first cast of the Queen of Spades so likely she's seen here in the role she originated.
