The DVD concludes with Jacques d’Amboise and Tanaquil Le Clercq in performance in a work by Jerome Robbins, an innovative reworking of the Nijinsky 1912 ballet. Beginning in 1954 and continuing for the next 25 years, principals, soloists, and corps of NYCB traveled to the television studios of Radio-Canada in Montreal to present core works of the repertoire, and George Balanchine’s major works, under his guidance. This is the first DVD release of this acclaimed series. 65 minutes, first DVD release 2014, black and white
