DVD/Videos: Stars and Stripes

Recommended Posts

I don't think the entire ballet has been filmed, but you can see the pas de deux and finale on one of the Balanchine Celebration tapes.

so far as i can say the only commercial video of STARS AND STRIPES is the last movement excerpt, which includes the ballet's big pas de deux and the finale with all the dancers of the earlier movements coming back for the ballet's conclusion.

i don't think this tape is still on the market but i believe used copies might be for sale.

as follows:


Balanchine Celebration, part two / produced by Thirteen/WNET in association with New York City Ballet, NVC Arts, and NOS Television ; directed by Matthew Diamond ; produced by Judy Kinberg ; choreography by George Balanchine. (86 min.) : sd., col. with b&w sequence

Host: Robert MacNeil.

Performed by New York City Ballet with guest artists.

Conductors: Hugo Fiorato, Gordon Boelzner, and Maurice Kaplow.

Executive producer, Jac Venza ; writer, Holly Brubach ; lighting, Mark Stanley.



Stars and stripes: Fourth and fifth campaigns / music, John Philip Sousa, adapted and orchestrated by Hershy Kay ; danced by Margaret Tracey, Damian Woetzel, and ensemble.


the full ballet was filmed in germany in the series of films that balanchine so disliked in the end and so it was shown on television a few times in the 1970s, and then not again.
