"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

"King Florestan the XIVth declares a grand christening ceremony to be held in honor of the birth of his daughter Princess Aurora. An entourage of all the fairies in the kingdom is invited to bestow gifts on the new-born. As the fairies are happily granting gifts of beauty, generosity, grace, song and temperament, they are suddenly interrupted by the sudden presence of the evil fairy Carabosse, who is furious at the King's failure to invite her to the ceremony. With spite and rage, Carabosse declares her curse on Princess Aurora: she will one day prick her finger and die. The Lilac Fairy, fortunately, has not granted her gift to the Princess. She acknowledges that Carabosse's power is immense and she cannot completely reverse the curse. However, she declares, although the Princess will prick her finger, the Princess will not die, but instead sleep for 100 years. The Princess will only be awoken by the kiss of a Prince."--Wikipedia (July 2006)

Footnotes : the Classics of Ballet( Visual )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This episode of Footnotes: The Classics of Ballet is about the Nutcracker. Dancer Frank Augustyn and others begin by examining some reasons why dancers dislike The nutcracker: its weak scenario, lack of dramatic characterization, ubiquitousness at Christmastime, and the sense that it shares in the modern-day commercialization of Christmas. They argue the pros and cons of new versions of the ballet, many of which attempt to give psychological relevance to the story. They conclude by acknowledging the ballet's perennial appeal, much of which derives from Tchaikovsky's score and the powerful response it creates in the dancer. Excerpts from a performance of Yuri Grigorovich's version of the ballet illustrate the discussion
