So, Paquita, I'd guess that the video is of the Royal Ballet.

Oh, and the production recorded was probably from the Touring Section of the Royal, as it was a staple of their repertoire for years, and yes, also the National Ballet of Canada. (Besides a lovely company, which modesty prevents me from mentioning, that used to work out of NY City Center....;)) In that production, one of our own posters was the finest Gilbertian hero Jasper (nobility and greatness disguised by a humble exterior) I ever saw in either the operas or ballet treatments.

I also remember the Joffrey's version fondly. Mel, did Rebecca Wright dance Poll? If not, she should have.
Both of these ballets represent good if not great works that enriched their companies' repertoires and now seem gone for good. It's too bad.

Judging from Celia Franca's photos of herself as Mrs. Bumble, the incessantly-nattering-about-the-weather Aunt, NBC used the Lancaster as well.
