Does anyone know if a cd exists containing all or most of the great pas de deux? I would imagine that such a thing doesn't exist but I am asking in hope!

there will likely be more informed posts on this point, but London CDs recently reissued a series of bonynge-conducted discs in a box called DANCEMANIA.
one of the discs is called: PAS DE DUEX and includes: DON Q, BLUE BIRD, NUTCRACKER, PAQUITA, ESMERALDA (Drigo), GRAND PAS CLASSIQUE (Auber), FLOWER FESTIVAL, CORSAIRE (Drigo).
another is called THE ART OF THE PRIMA BALLERINA, and includes Pas de Deux music from LA BAYADERE, GISELLE ACT 2, LA SYLPHIDE, and BLACK SWAN, among other selections.
perhaps you could find the whole set of 5 discs marketed in a box as DANCEMANIA - or the individual discs on-line (or elsewhere) used, according to the separate titles.
fyi: the other discs are entitled: HOMAGE TO PAVLOVA, INVITATION TO THE DANCE & BALLET MUSIC FROM OPERA.

Odette,
I know that an album called Ballet Gala: Pas De Deux exists but I don't know if it is easily available. Amazon.com has the details about it here: Ballet Gala: Pas De Deux
The tracks included are:
1. Pas De Deux (Don Quixote)
2. Blue Bird Pas De Deux (The Sleeping Beauty)
3. Pas De Deux (The Nutcracker, Act II)
4. Pas De Deux (Paquita)
5. Pas De Deux (La Esmeralda)
6. Pas Classique
7. Pas De Deux (Flower Festival In Genzano)
8. Pas De Deux (Le Corsaire)
Definitely not "all or most" of the of the great pas de deux but it is a nice collection.

Thanks so much! I will try to track the second one down-I did a search for the first-amazon.co.uk said it was unavailable at the moment-does anyone have any more information-or ideas about locating them?
