|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.
