Here's a description:
Two legendary male ballet dancers are featured here in their best BELL TELEPHONE HOUR APPEARANCES. Rudolf Nureyv is showcased in rare performances of FLOWER FESTIVAL, LE CORSAIRE, BLACK SWAN, and DIANA AND ACTEON. Erik Bruhn is seen in clips from DON QUIXOTE, LA SYLPHIDE, SWAN LAKE and the balcony scene from ROMEO AND JULIET.
The Don Q. is with Maria Tallchief (already released on Maria Tallchief BTH tape); Romeo and Juliet is with Carla Fracci - the balcony scene); Swan Lake is the Black Swan pas de deux with Sonia Arova; La Sylphide is from Act II with Fracci. I don't have the tape yet, but he also did Coppelia pas de deux with Arova for the BTH.

I experienced this last night on WNYE's production of "Bright Nights Big City". Really loved it.
It's important that people see the dancers of the past, and those dancing the works that were created on them (there are Massine works as well). Yes, the performances were often taped in less-than ideal conditions, but it is better than nothing. How else are the future generations to know how great Maria Tallchief and Svetlana Berisova etc... were? And their greatness still shines through, even in these TV performances.
