"Swan Lake is regarded as one of the greatest works in the art of ballet. The magic of Tchaikovsky's music, embodying the love of Prince Siegfried for the enchanted Swan Queen, has greatly contributed to making this the best-loved of all classical ballets ... Prince Siegfried celebrates his twenty-first birthday; his mother tells him it is time to marry, but he prefers to go hunting. Alone, by a lakeside, he sees a swan who turns to human form. She is an enchanted princess who can be saved only by ture love. He promises this, but is tricked by the wicked magician who disguises his own daughter as the swan-maiden"--Container

The spell will be broken if a man, pure in heart, pledges his love to her. Prince Siegfried's mentor, Von Rothbart, is responsible, for he is an evil sorcerer. At a ball, Von Rothbart disguises his daughter Odile as Odette, and the Prince is captivated, and confesses his love.

5 editions published between 1983 and 2004 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 281 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

"The Sleeping Beauty remains, as Rudolf Nureyev often called it, the 'ballet of ballets'. It is the most accomplished and the most brilliant, as well as one of the most spectacular of the 19th century, and the most representative of the 'noble' style of classical dancing. Rudolf Nureyev's version, which he created for the Opéra Ballet in 1989, was recorded at the Opéra Bastille in 1999, in a new production (sets and costumes) created by his faithful collaborators, Ezio Frigerio and Franca Squarciapino, who had already produced Swan Lake, Romeo and Juliet and La Bayadère"--Container
