Notes: Lecture on romantic ballet and Swan lake, given by Jane D. Schwartz at the New School for Social Research, in New York City, probably on July 1, 1974. This is cassette 6 of a series of recordings of classes on dance history and criticism, conducted at the New School for Social Research in New York City, between Feb. 1973 and Dec. 1975, which are cataloged under classmark *MGZTC 3-1405.
The sound quality of the speaker on this recording is fair overall, but occasionally poor. The recordings of music excerpts on the tape are highly distorted. The recording is also marred by extraneous noise.

Abstract:

Side A (ca. 51 min.). Jane D. Schwartz speaks about the romantic ballet, including the various approaches to the subject; elements that characterize a ballet as romantic; differences in male and female technique before and after the introduction of pointe shoes; technique and costume as used to enhance a work's romanticism; the element of local color, including the incorporation of national dances and popular songs; innovations in staging, scenery, and lighting that enhanced the element of mystery; and the ballet of the nuns in Act III of Giacomo Meyerbeer's opera Robert le diable. Schwartz speaks about the ballet Swan lake, including the origins of its scenario; the score by Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky [plays recorded excerpts from the score of Swan lake]; the original 1877 production of Swan lake, choreographed by Wenzel Reisinger; Pelageya [Mikhailovna] Karpakova, the first Swan queen; [Anna Iosifovna] Sobeshchanskai︠a︡, the second Swan queen and the addition of a grand pas-de-deux [plays recorded excerpt from the score of the pas-de-deux]; the public's reaction to the ballet; its revival in 1880 and 1882 by Emil Hansen.

Side B (ca. 51 min.). Jane D. Schwartz continues speaking about Swan lake; Marius Petipa, including his background; his ballet Daughter of Pharaoh [Fille du Pharaon]; his very intricate scenarios [reads an excerpt from a scenario Petipa gave to Tchaikovsky; reads excerpts from first-hand accounts that illustrate Petipa's working methods]; Lev Ivanov, including his musicality; his personality [gap]; Ivanov and his choreographing of The nutcracker; public reaction to The nutcracker; the 1895 new production of Swan lake [choreographed by Ivanov and Petipa and reorchestrated by Riccardo Drigo], including attempted revivals prior to Tchaikovsky's death; the 1894 revival of Act II, choreographed by Ivanov; details regarding the 1895 production, including the choreographic motifs Ivanov created and revisions to the story; Pierina Legnani in the role of Odette-Odile; Pavel [Andreevich] Gerdt in the role of Siegfried; the introduction of the role of Benno; David Blair's version of Swan lake for American Ballet Theatre; the role of Siegfried; the role of Rothbart; the role of Odette-Odile [ends abruptly].
