    Speaking of original productions, according to the Bolshoi, Petipa’s original Don Quixote choreography has been lost forever. Apparently it wasn’t well received and was considered too fanciful. That got me wondering how did the balletmeisters documented their productions before the advent of video.

    They taught them to their dancers and repetiteurs, "legs to legs" as the Russians say.
    Back then, people had memories!

    I recommend:
    Prokovieff: Love to the three oranges
    Bartok: The miraculous Mandarin (it is originally a opera, but it's suite is used as a ballet, too)
