I feel if Sylvie Guillem didn't want her performance live-streamed, for whatever reason, that is her right as a performer and she should not be reproached for lack of generosity or anything else.

It's still not completely clear whether the refusal came from her. It just seems to be the likeliest explanation given her reputation as "Mlle Non."

I guess I'm really old now -- I'm still gobsmacked when we can watch even a part of an event like this online.

I think we should be clamoring for more! Right now ballet streams are lagging behind opera streams, while live streams of classical music concerts are presented every few days. Of course filming ballet is a more complex operation, but Arte has already established partnerships with the Théâtre de Chaillot and the Musée du quai Branly and streams dance performances from those venues fairly regularly. It would be nice if Arte would venture into opera houses to film ballets, as well as operas. The closest it comes to this at present is in the filming of performances by the Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève, which is closer to a modern dance company.

I have a feeling that, at least in the US, there are the same kind of union/copyright/contract issues involved in live streaming that there are in the manufacture of DVDs.

No, I don't hold out much hope for U.S. streams either. The only American institution that is really active in that regard is the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, which found sponsors to help them do it: "Live from Orchestra Hall webcasts are presented by the Ford Motor Company Fund and made possible by generous support from The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation." I don’t know what sort of deal they’ve made with their players, but most, though not all, of the music they stream is in the public domain.

Le Riche gave an interview to "Kommersant," and Ismene Brown wrote an introduction/commentary and translated the article for her blog:

It's a very interesting read.

Yes, definitely worth checking out. It is thought-provoking.

I was very touched by his sense of responsibility to the field, and the idea that artists who are educated by an institution might owe some time to that institution after they are done performing.
