This episode of Footnotes: The Classics of Ballet is about Swan Lake. Dancer Frank Augustyn and others discuss various aspects of the ballet Swan Lake, beginning with its evolution from a failure at its first performance to its current status as a ballet classic. Drawing on their own performing experiences, the dancers discuss how the story can be made believable and compelling. They note changes in the choreography over time, particularly the increased importance of the male dancer. Advances in technical facility, exemplified by the thirty-two fouettés executed in the role of Odile by Pierina Legnani, are contrasted to the ballet's emphasis upon dramatic characterization, especially in the dual role of Odette/Odile. Performance excerpts (choreography by Yuri Grigorovich after Aleksandr Gorski, Lev Ivanov, and Marius Petipa) illustrate the discussion

Footnotes : the Classics of Ballet( Visual )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This episode of Footnotes: The Classics of Ballet is about the Sleeping Beauty. Dancer Frank Augustyn and others discuss how Marius Petipa's The Sleeping Beauty represents a throwback to the early court ballet in its appetite for spectacle, proliferation of divertissements, and disregard for dramatic motivation and characterization. The dancers describe how the principal roles can be performed to bring out their human qualities as well as to display classical ballet technique. The expressive qualities of Tchaikovsky's score are shown in excerpts from the Bluebird pas de deux and the Act III grand pas de deux, and conductor George Crum adds his special insights to a discussion of the interaction of dancers and conductors. The discussion is illustrated by excerpts from a Kirov Ballet performance (choreography by Konstantin Sergeyev after Lev Ivanov and Marius Petipa) and footage of Bujones in the Act III male variation
