DVD/Videos: Divertimento #15
Posted 04 February 2007 - 08:04 PM
I understand that the Balanchine trust is protective of the Balanchine ballets and it can be difficult to find videos of them. However, I know that there was a video for sale this year of POB doing "Jewels" so that gave me some hope.
Does anyone know how I might be able to order such a tape? Thanks for the help!
