Lynn Seymour and Peter Schaufuss La Sylphide 1978

Recommended Posts

The Chicago Film Archives are preserving the hundreds and hundreds of films in Ruth Page's collection and are slowly putting them on line. This is a rehearsal film in which Seymour and Schaufuss are dancing with the Chicago Ballet in January 1978. A little over a year later the company would disband. They were dancing here in a good theater (the Lyric Opera) with a full orchestra. As it is a rehearsal, sometimes someone wouldn't always dance full out. The Madge is Freddie Franklin and Effie is a girl named Cynthia Ann Roses. (The film isn't labeled apart from the title but I happened to have seen the rehearsal).

If you look at it you need not to use Explorer, I was told it wouldn't work with that. Additionally the sound is low so put your speakers up as much as you can.

The Page archives seem to have a wealth of this stuff -- I'm really looking forward to seeing how it all comes together.
