Barbie Dances, With Help From City BalletMORE
By VALERIE GLADSTONE
Published: September 28, 2003
So small wonder that two years ago, when the company decided Barbie was ready to make her video debut, the vehicle they chose was "The Nutcracker," with Barbie playing Clara in an animated adaptation of the E. T. A. Hoffmann ballet classic. The video and DVD have sold 3.5 million copies.
Now for her followup, she has been cast as Odette in "Swan Lake," among the plummiest roles in ballet, one that most dancers have to wait years for a chance at. The video and DVD of "Barbie in Swan Lake" will be released by Artisan Home Entertainment on Tuesday.
