I was going to click on Grand pas de quatre, but Cristian told me Les Trockaderos does not count! LOL LOL

Well, it is just that their choreo, even as a tribute to Dolin's, certainly ommits a great deal of it, so I don't know...it doesn't sound as a good fit-(although i could be wrong...)

Sometimes the Trocks do a very straight performance of a landmark work, the humor coming strictly from the gender substitution, but I haven't seen their PdQ in a long time, so I'm not sure what they're up to right now. They'll be in Seattle later this spring, though, and I'm looking forward to seeing them.

A few words to thank you all for your contribution to this thread and your voting. My intention was to evaluate the degree of familiarity of BT'rs, whom I believe are pretty much representative of the most knowledge side of the audience, to the cornerstones of the art form. I had a few surprises, as which how few votes works like "Grand Pas de Quatre" or Nijinska's derivative of "Fille" got. Other works, like Bournonville's-(with the exception of "La Sylphide")-seem to be even less known for a majority-(me included...Sylphide is the only one I know, and the usual excerpts from Flower Festival), and some recreations, like "Ondine", "La Peri", "Le Talisman" or "La Source" seem to be even more tucked in in their urns. Then, I know there is a vast number of ballet lovers whom, as bart once wrote, basically see ballet as what Balanchine made of it, which I have come to realize is a whole world of its own, with a vast repertoire and a specific pathos and language.

Still, I'm happy to report "Giselle" ended up hand in hand with "The Nutcracker" and "Swan Lake"-(38 votes each)-closely followed by "Sleeping Beauty"-(37)-, "Coppelia"-(33)-and "La Bayadere"-(32).

Again, thank you all and Happy Ballet Viewing, and here are the winners! flowers.gifflowers.gifflowers.gif
