The nutcracker by Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky( Visual )

42 editions published between 1977 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,762 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The chief attraction of this 1977 adaptation is the pairing of Baryshnikov and Kirkland. In consequence, the storyline has been altered to keep Clara and the Nutcracker prince as the focus of the tale. At a Christmas party, Clara is presented with the elegant Nutcracker prince by her doting godfather, Herr Drosselmeyer. A drunken male guest breaks it, and Clara is devastated. That night, Clara dreams about the Nutcracker prince: he comes to life, fights off the Rat King and his minions, and takes her to his kingdom. There she is royally entertained, and they dance together. Shy and diffident Clara longs to remain in the dream world--safe on the brink of adulthood--but her love for her godfather and her family draw her back into the waking world, where adulthood and real romance await her

Nikolai Rodchenko, a Russian ballet dancer who defected from the Soviet Union years ago, finds himself back in the motherland--trapped--thanks to an emergency airplane landing. The Soviets do not imprison him, however; they hope to score a propaganda victory by 'persuading' him to become Russian again. That is why he is sent to Siberia, to Raymond Greenwood and his Russian wife Darya. Greenwood is an American tap dancer who defected to Russia in opposition to the Vietnam War. Nikolai makes Raymond realize how limited his life is in the USSR, and together they hatch a plan to evade their KGB minders, escape to the American Embassy and eventually the US

Don Quixote : (Kitri's wedding) : a ballet in three acts by L Minkus( Visual )

14 editions published between 1983 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in sunny Spain, Don Quixote has always been popular in icy Russia. Choreographed by Mikhail Baryshnikov after Petipa and Gorsky for American Ballet Theatre, it is again a pretext for marvelous dancing. The plot is simple: in Barcelona, young Kitri and her lover Basilio must outwit her father, who wants her to marry the rich Gamache. Kitri's incidental protector is Don Quixote, who sees the feminine ideal in all the women he meets. The path of the plotting lovers travels through a tavern, a gypsy camp, a windmill attack, a fake suicide, and finally a festive wedding. Baryshnikov both pays homage to and revitalizes one of the most popular and joyful ballets in the surviving Russian imperial ballet's repertory

Merce Cunningham : a lifetime of dance by Merce Cunningham( Visual )

4 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Merce Cunningham, a colossus of 20th-century choreography, is perhaps most famous for his sheer fecundity--inventing steps, choreographing 200+ dances, and over 800 "Events" (site-specific works). At the forefront of the American avant-garde for more than 50 years, he abandoned conventional elements of dance structure, most controversially, the relationship of dance and music influenced by his collaboration with composer John Cage. Endlessly inventive and inquisitive, Cunningham collaborated with a wide range of composers, designers, and artists, incorporating video into pieces, and employing computerized choreography in his later years to instruct members of his company. Unlike most choreographers, movement itself was his principal subject matter--neither narrative nor musical form determines the dance structure. Cunningham leaves a vast legacy, but he expressed his view of his art saying, "Dancing is the art of the present tense." Cunningham himself, along with his dancers, collaborators, and observers, traces the course of his long career and that of his dance company. Topics include: his special qualities as a dancer; his performances as a member of Martha Graham's company; his choreographic approach and sources of inspiration; his longtime association and collaboration with composer John Cage; his residency at Black Mountain College; the development of his use of chance procedures; the early years of his company; his preference for avant-garde music, and his collaborations with various composers; and his use of technological innovations such as the computer program Life forms
