Description

Beginning in 1954, and continuing over the next twenty-five years, principals, soloists, and corps of the New York City Ballet travelled to the television studios of Radio-Canada in Montreal to present core works of their repertoire, under the guidance of the company's Artistic Director and co-founder George Balanchine. This first release in VAI's historic series features two of Balanchine's most important works, Serenade and Orpheus, performed by an ensemble of lengendary NYCB dancers. Balanchine himself appears on screen to introduce Orpheus, which features Nicholas Magallanes and Francisco Moncion dancing the roles they created in the 1948 premiere.
