    I have this one.

I know some people have created ballets out of music like Debussy's Prelude To The Afternoon of a Faun, but it was originally a symphonic poem and not written as a ballet so to me that doesn't count.

    Very beautifully produced packaging though. I tend to get my fill of ballet (and I like it) in short bits in Russian operas.

    G*D DAMN - just realized I missed the "ballet recordings" bit - do apologize for the dumb joke. I did not know he made enough ballet recordings to warrant a box that size. In my defense, I cannot believe he was on anything that did not feature his wife - and yes, that is an attempt at a face saving put down !
