George Balanchine's The nutcracker( Visual )

2 editions published in 2008 in Greek, Modern and English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite its elegant gorgeous stage set, and costumes of awesome beauty and richness of detail, some of the fairy-tale magic of "George Balanchine's 'The Nutcracker' " has been lost in its translation from a staged ballet into a film. However, the dancing is breathtaking, the narration keeps the story moving, and it is as well acted as it is danced. This is a full corps de ballet version, sumptuous with classic ballet sequences in their full glory. The story is simple: Herr Drosselmeier presents Marie with the Nutcracker, who battles and defeats the Mouse King, and as the Nutcracker Prince he escorts Marie to the land of the Sugarplum Fairy. With its parents, guests, and children sharing a 19th-century Christmas Eve of games and folk dances, the film has all the right storybook inflections

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frederic Franklin, a former principal dancer of the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo, teaches five female variations from the company's production of Raymonda, first presented at New York City Center of Music and Drama on March 12, 1946. The first four variations are taught to a group of four women, one of whom then performs the completed variation. To exemplify Balanchine's rethinking of the same music, each variation is followed by a counterpart from one of his later ballets to the Glazounov score: Pas de dix (1955), Raymonda variations (1961), and Cortège hongrois (1973). Variation V was recreated as a male variation in Raymonda variations. An interview with Franklin ends the recording
