I’m especially pleased, after having seen all the George Platte Lynes photos, to finally see Magallenes and Moncion in moving pictures. They do not disappoint!

The dancer who blew me away, though, was Patricia Wilde:  what a dynamic dancer she was!

 

 

Patricia Wilde stood out for me as well - what a force of nature! Serenade is well danced throughout, but Wilde exudes confidence and skill - she has the movements down cold, and yet she still looks thrilled to perform them.

 

Adams dances with more "concern" if that makes sense. She may have been Balanchine's most favorite muse of all, but she was not emotionally up to the task, if you believe her own comments and those of fellow dancers. Too emotionally frail for the role of 'Muse to Balanchine'.

Yes, thanks. I still haven't seen the L'Clerq documentary, though I have a copy on order. Is the Coppelia pas in the documentary?

I don't remember it in the film, though it's been a couple months since I saw it.

There's about a half minute of it, about an hour and seventeen minutes into the documentary, among some more dance clips following the sections about polio and her later life; the glimpses of her dancing are not quite all in the first half of the film.  What we get of it here is the beginning of the adagio; she wakes up as a life-size doll in a toy shop (to the "Dawn" music on the VAI DVD, although we can't hear that music in the documentary, we continue to hear Debussy's "Faun" and  Barbara Horgan) and then she and Andre Eglevsky (as Franz) begin to dance.
