someone described to me a tape of Makarova dancing Don Q after her child had been born, as being a very good version. I wonder if this tape is commercially available somewhere? Or was it only showed on TV?

Would be very very interested in getting it.

I've seen a video of Makarova in Don Q Pas before the birth of her child. I saw Makarova perform the Baryshnikov full length at the MET with Bujones soon after the birth of her son and she danced amazingly. I did not know that there is a video of her in the full length version.

i am assuming the ref. here is to the DON QUIXOTE PAS DE DEUX

here's one televised version listed in n.y.pub.lib.for perf. arts.

there might also have been another, on a one-time annual event called GALA OF STARS, if mem. serves it might even be w/ NM and A.Godunov, but i'm not sure about that.

in any case these are televised performances but not commercially available ones.

i forget when makarova's son was born.
