Thanks for the notification!  I do hope they bring up Catherine Littlefield's 1937 production, the first full-scale, full-length version presented in the U.S.  Nearly all of the participants (dancers, designers etc.) were Americans.

Do you think this might be recorded and posted somewhere, for those of us unable to get to NYC for the event?

i think NYPL does record the events it presents, tho' when such records get put into its catalog is likely a separate matter. 

and i'm not sure these recordings, if video, actually include the video clips that get shown with the conversation, as these are copyrights of whole other order.

Oh, I know.  Listening to the radio earlier today, to someone from a news service that seems to spend all its time going through video on the internet and tracking down actual photographers/people in the video to assign authorship and verify accuracy.  It sounds almost like a forensic process -- what a Herculean task!

If questions are posted here, may be those who are going can field the questions to the panelists and report back?

to clarify: this discussion was first given last April to an invited audience.

the material planned for discussion more than took up the time of the presentation. there was no opportunity for a question-and-answer portion.

i suspect that will be the same this time.
