George Balanchine's The nutcracker( Visual )

2 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in 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

Nothing to hide : a dancer's life by Robert La Fosse( Book )

2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La Fosse presents us with another ballet-world expose. Catapulted to an early success with American Ballet Theatre as a protege of Baryshnikov, La Fosse is frank but not graphic about both his early drug use and his gay lifestyle. In 1985, personal doubts caused him to resign from ABT to find himself and do choreography, but he shortly joined the New York City Ballet. La Fosse shows the most insight when he discusses his fellow dancers, the differences between the two companies, and the difficulties of partnering various ballerinas
