If you go to http://www.kgl-teater.dk/ on the home page you'll see a photo of Bournonville's Konservatoriet, and below that there's a little icon of a movie camera and "Se interview med Nikolaj Hübbe" Click, find the same words again, choose your connection speed and you'll get it.
They also promise a "trailer" but I couldn't get that to work.

Also I liked seeing the trailer but the performance didn't seem as violent as I remember. (It has been a long time, though.)

I only saw this with Nureyev, who was crazed from his entry. I was always surprised at how much dancing there was in it. (Meaning, I remember it as a theater piece, and am surprised every time I see it at how much it uses dance.)

Am I right in thinking the woman dancing the student is different in the rehearsal as against the performance version? I think the performance version seems less violent than I remember because the victim doesn't seem all that frightened.

I have several Danish videos where English comes out suddenly. One of the strangest, to me, is an introduction to Bournonville's "Kermesse in Bruges," where in the very last sentence, the narrator says "happy ending." I thought that odd, since Bournonville is often denigrated for having only happy endings (his darker works were dumped in the 1930s) that there isn't a Danish equivalent.
