George Balanchine's The nutcracker( Visual )

10 editions published between 1994 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 392 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

Franklin recreates Balanchine choreography( Visual )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 165 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

Ballet with Edward Villella( Visual )

5 editions published between 1970 and 2013 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edward Villella, virile lead dancer of the New York City Ballet, dissolves the notion that male ballet dancers are sissifiedin a montage of dances demonstrating the muscular power and control necessary in this art. He shows how the body is transformed into a smoothly working organism adhering to the demands of musical timing while expressing ideas and feeling through beautiful gesture, form and line. With members of his troupe, he shows the importance of the placement of the foot in gathering power for a bravura performance, and of the glove-like ballet shoe in providing freedom of movement. A Pas De Deux illustrates how the male dancer supports and works in partnership with the ballerina. A segment from Giselle reveals the posturing, posing, storytelling qualities of the romantic ballet. Contrasted to this literal style is a sequence from Apollo, a 20th century neoclassic ballet. Total freedom with total control, the paradox of dance, is demonstrated in a brilliant performance of Rubies
