American Ballet Theatre - Lincoln Center At Home | Thespie

This 1978 Live From Lincoln Center broadcast showcases an evening of repertory, including the Act III Grand Pas de Deux of Don Quixote with Natalia Makarova and Fernando Bujones, Michel Fokine’s Les Sylphides, set to music by Chopin, and George Balanchine’s plotless ballet Theme and Variations to the glorious Tchaikovsky score. Rounding out the broadcast is Fokine’s Firebird, a magical tale of the legendary creature who helps two noble lovers overcome an evil sorcerer, set to an iridescent score by Stravinsky.
