This third volume in VAI’s historic series featuring the New York City Ballet
in Montreal includes a newly discovered scene from Coppélia which was
choreographed by George Balanchine especially for this telecast. It is danced
by Tanaquil Le Clercq and André Eglevsky. The DVD also includes the first
video release of Gian Carlo Menotti’s ballet-pantomime The Unicorn, the
Gorgon, and the Manticore (or Three Sundays of a Poet).
This beautiful and unusual work is a mix of oratorio and ballet, with a chorus
describing stars Allegra Kent, Nicholas Magallanes, and Roy Tobias. The DVD
is rounded out by a segment of scenes from Swan Lake in the Balanchine
choreography and featuring Maria Tallchief and Eglevsky. Balanchine himself
appears on screen in an interview with René Levesque, discussing the history
of the New York City Ballet.
