Very short, silent and not beautifully filmed but interesting nonetheless; from the Ruth Page archive that is slowly being put on line; remember that it will not play with Explorer but works with Firefox or Chrome.

I believe he enters about half way through the film.

Thanks for the link.

 

I'm both thrilled and overwhelmed at the dance video that is coming online all over the place.  As a pirate queen, I applaud everyone who collected and kept these films, and the people who are working hard to make it accessible to us now!

This was wonderful!

 

I am fascinated by the apparent abandonment with which many of these older productions were danced.

Have we lost something somewhere along the way? Are we/dancers/choreographers so obsessed with correct and clean technique that some of this ecstatic power is lost?

According to what I can find it appears that these performances in October 1962 were Nureyev's US stage debut.

 

No; it was with that company but in March 1962 at the Brooklyn Academy. My bad.
