"Durante on TV"
 
   I have just noticed in "Vision" of today's The Times that a satellite cannel called PERFORMANCE is showing Viviana Durante all day. This is a 2 & 1/2 hour programmed called "Viviana Durante in a Balanchine Celebration" and is being shown 4 times today. Dose anyone know about this programme ? I'm really frustrated as I have no subscription for this channel. I can't do anything about it because I noticed this 20 minutes ago !
Please let me know if anyone watched this programme. This channel seems to show a lot of ballet performances as well as opera ones.Is it worth to get the subscription ?

   She was recorded doing a pdd in "Who Cares" with Robert Fosse. It was part of the 1993 Balanchine celebrations in which many foriegn stars were invited to dance with the NYCB. Durantes performance was very poetic.


You can the video from the NY City Web Site. It is called the Balanchine Celebration Part 2. As well as all the pdd and solos from Who CAres It also has D.Bussell doing pdd from Agon, a bit from Western Symphony and an incredible performance by Margeret Tracey doing Stars and Stripes with Damion Woetzel.

It is 90 mins long as packed with great dancing and is a must see! You will however need a NTSC capable machine or get it converted.

   Thanks Eugene ! I hope to watch it soon. Can anyone tell me what kind of channel "PERFORMANCE" is ? I'm seriously considering to get the subscription. But is it a channel which just shaws videos ? It recently run RB's "Manon" and ABT's "Don Q", which I've already seen on videos.

   It is available on cable- However cable and wireless have dropped it. But most of the stuff is available on video either here on in the USA. Check the web site www.kultur.com for the best videos from the USA. They do ship to the U.K
