DVD/Videos: Harlequinade Video

Recommended Posts

Balanchine's HARLEQUINADE has not been released commerically nor even filmed for television.

The only portions on video were telecast once as part of a BARYSHNIKOV AT THE WHITE HOUSE program in 1979, where he danced the first of the ballet's 2 pad de deux w/ Patricia McBride, and then again in the recent Balanchine 100 telecast sent out on PBS as the suite of cildren's dances that open the second act.

Otherwise there are no videos in the public domain.

As I hope is made clear here, the two excerpts mentioned above were shown on tv but they were not marketed subsequently as commercial cassettes. Your only chance of seeing these tapes is doing so in a library or finding someone who taped the 1979 or 2004 programs when they were aired.
