"NEW"/OLD TAPES ON NUREYEV AND BERIOSOVA<P>RUDOLF NUREYEV, THE COMPLETE BELL TELEPHONE HOUR PERFORMANCES,<BR>1962 - 1964<P>In 1962, the twenty-three year old Rudolf Nureyev made the first<BR>of four appearances<BR>on the US TV programme "The Bell Telephone Hour". <P>These famous<BR>and long sought<BR>after recordings have now appeared on video, with Nureyev<BR>dancing pas de deux<BR>from Flower Festival in Genzano, Le Corsaire, Diana and Actaeon,<BR>and Swan Lake,<BR>act III. <P>His partners are the American ballerinas Maria<BR>Tallchief and Lupe Serrano,<BR>and, in both the last two items, the legendary Svetlana<BR>Beriosova.<P>Considering the recordings are nearly forty years old, the<BR>quality is good (all<BR>are in colour except the last), but don't expect<BR>state-of-the-art picture quality.<P>In addition, there is some tape "wow" in the Swan Lake section,<BR>and the video,<BR>despite its high price, plays for less than forty minutes.<P>Nevertheless, this is an essential acquisition for any serious<BR>collector of some<BR>of the great dance performances of our time.<P>PLEASE NOTE: the British edition is available only in PAL<BR>format: the NTSC version<BR>is produced by VAI videos in the USA.<P><BR>You may order from our web site by going direct to<BR> <A HREF="http://www.dancebooks.co.uk/new.shtml#3" TARGET=_blank>http://www.dancebooks.co.uk/new.shtml#3</A> <P>or you may send orders by email to dancebooks@mail.com, by<BR>telephone to (44)<BR>(0) 207 836 2314, by fax to (44) (0) 207 497 0473, or by post to<BR>Dance Books<BR>Ltd., 15 Cecil Court, London WC2N 4EZ, UK.<P><BR>
