If we are talking about strictly "performance" videos, it would have to be "ABT at the Met" (I always enjoy a mixed bill) and that video has a little bit of everything on it!

The other ballet is ABT's 'Romeo & Juliet' with Makarova and Kevin McKenzie.
Also on my wish list would be Farrell/Martins and the NYCB in 'Allegro Brilliante' on Dance in America.

JS: are you saying that the balanchine 'nutcracker' from 1958/playhouse90 is now commercially available or that it heads your most wishful 'wish list'?
and yes, melissa's comment about pbs shows aired but not put out commercially reminds one of the things that still need to be 'put out there'.
re: the 'allegro b.' it's a case of so near, yet so far, as the 'dance in america' that included the 'allegro' in question, was released EXCEPT for the 'allegro' segment itself, due, rumor has it, to the fact that nonesuch could not obtain releases from the lead(s) documented in the taping. (a similar situation prevented the 'dance in america' that included 'jewels' excerpts from including the 'rubies' pas de deux).
so many telecasts; so few commercial releases!
regarding the initial query posted here for ONE video tape, i guess i'd have to say i have no idea where i'd begin, so i won't even start the process of elimination.

I think it would be ABT Variety and Virtuosity

I wish! I saw it years ago. If they ever release it (they won't, I'm sure; as I recall, it was black and white and not up to today's video standards), I'll be the first in line.

Is it possible to see the 1958 Nutcracker? I would love to get a chance to see Balanchine actualy performing the role of Drosselmeier, and see the choreography as it was then.
