"Can U Help?"
 
   I am looking for a ballet documentary on video that explains about the life of a dancer, hopefully showing preparation for performances, behind the scenes info and a bit about classwork, daily routines etc... Can anyone suggest a particulary good one that is maybe similar to the sort of thing i am looking for?

   The only one I can think of is 'Darcey Bussell' which shows her in rehearsal and preparing for a big show. Not all that good, though - a bit repetitive I thought. Probably be able to get it through either Dance Books or Amazon. Also at any of the big HMV stores if you live in the UK.

   It exists too a documentary about the ABT called Ballet and which shows rehearsals and performance on stage. I don't know if a commercial video exist but they passed it on a cable channel called Mezzo in France. It's a documentary 3 hours long.

   There is a wonderful film of Nicolas Le Riche which was done a few years ago. it's in French and I'm not sure whether you could get a copy. I've got a copy I taped off French tv which I treat like gold-dust!! The new French film 'tout pres des etoiles' is brilliant too and full of all sorts of insights into dancers lives. It's at cinemas now in France, I hope it'll come to some of the independent cinemas here and eventually onto video.

   Liz, is this film of Le Riche called "Danseur etoile" featuring a rehearsal with Neumeier and dancing with his wife Osta ? If so, this is available on video in Japan. I saw the advert so many times in the ballet magazines I get sent from Japan. Thought it looks very interesting. Schame it's not available in UK.

   I have been looking for what I think you are talking about for about 2 years - but I didn't know the title, I recorded it from the tv over xmas a few years back and after accidently recording over it I was only left with the ending credits. Is it the one where ABT are touring?,Produced and directed by Fredrick Wiseman and broadcast by La sept and the BBC. I'm not sure either if it has been put onto video - Do you have a copy?

The Australian Ballet has just such a video, called A Window on the World of Classical Ballet.
