    Default New York City Ballet on TV

    There are very few videos of the New York City Ballet and not many TV appearances in recent years. Therefore I was excited to find out that U.S. Public Television would be broadcasting a two part special - New York City Ballet in Paris. Here's a link to the web page.

    All four dances are to French music. I've seen Symphony in C several times (including a performance by the Royal Ballet). I've seen La Valse once. The other two I have not seen. I will cwerainly have my DVR set.

    The only problem is .....not watchable outside your country.

    Maybe they'll make it available on the web.

    Enjoyed both episodes. My only complaint is that I didn't find the Gounod music terribly engaging. But that may be due in part to listening through television speakers.

    All in all a fine introduction to Mr. B's oeuvre. And Teresa Reichlen's legs . . .

    Edit - Forgot to add the link for on-line viewing:

    I don't know if this will work for overseas viewers. If asked for a zip code try mine 10016
