Frederic Franklin recreating the male solo from Raymonda, Act III ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Frederic Franklin, a former premier danseur of the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo, works in the studio with Nikolaj Hübbe, a principal dancer of New York City Ballet, on the male variation from the Pas Classique Hongrois from Raymonda, Act III. The variation was choreographed by George Balanchine for Franklin, although an injury prevented him from performing in the ballet's premiere. Hübbe first marks the variation, then dances it full-out in its entirety or in sections as he and Franklin discuss and refine its components. In the ensuing interview with Nancy Reynolds, Franklin reminisces about Balanchine's creation of Raymonda for the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo in 1946, with a cast headed by Alexandra Danilova as Raymonda, himself (alternating with Nicholas Magallanes) as Jean de Brienne, and Nikita Talin as the Emir Abd-er-Raham. He also recalls other works staged by Balanchine for the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo, notably Jeu de cartes, La sonnambula, Danses concertantes, Concerto barocco, and the musical Song of Norway
