The nutcracker ( visu )
5 editions published between 1970 and 2001 in English and held by 247 libraries worldwide
The chief attraction of this 1968 adaptation is Rudolf Nureyev, who had defected to the West in 1961. This is his adaptation of the work, and the dancing is very classical, the costumes sumptuous, and the orchestra sparkling. The production made ballerina Merle Park a star. At a Christmas party, Clara is presented with the elegant Nutcracker prince by her doting godfather, Herr Drosselmeyer. The Nutcracker is broken and Clara is devastated. That night, Clara dreams about the Nutcracker prince: he comes to life, fights off a Rat King and his minions, and takes her to his kingdom

Romeo & Juliet by William Shakespeare( visu )
10 editions published between 1984 and 2005 in English and No Linguistic Content and held by 225 libraries worldwide
Sir Kenneth MacMillan's Romeo and Juliet has long been one of the greatest successes in The Royal Ballet repertoire, winning worldwide acclaim as an impassioned and thrilling view of Shakespeare's tragedy and of Prokofiev's glorious score. His sensual choreography poignantly captures the conflict between blossoming love and cankerous revenge. Romeo and Juliet calls upon the full forces of a great company of dance-actors to present the street fights of the feuding Capulets and Montagues in renaissance Verona, and also to convey the splendour of such scenes as the Capulet ball. It also requires a ballerina and a premier danseur able to express the raptures and despair that mark the young lovers' tragedy. In Alessandra Ferri and Wayne Eagling the roles are lived with tremendous intensity, whether soaring during the balcony pas de deux or caught in the last agonizing moments in the Capulet vault
