Balanchine Celebration I is a must have for a complete ballet library. If you are a fan of Balanchines work, it will contain along with the Celebration II most of his best choreographed ballets with such guest stars as: Darcy Bussell & Patricia Barker dancing his most profound works: AGON & APOLLO respectively. For those of you not such Balanchine disciples you may find out what this contemporary choreographer really has that makes him one of the most influencial people of our century. With out this series of Celebrations I&II your dance collection will be nill and void.

This video, and part 2 are so great I'd rate them 10 stars! I've watched it a hundred times because it always makes me feel so good. The choreography is so perfect and musical that after you've seen the ballet, every time you hear the music you see the dance steps images in your mind again! and the dancers are amazing,pure energy.The only regret is that there's not enough Balanchine's Ballet videos available, I've already bought them all.

Balanchine danced by a truly "Who's Who" of the dance world. Excerpts of his best known ballets, with the best quality of videography one might achieve. Five stars are not enough to rate these videos. Don't forget "The Balanchine Celebration II", either.

The tension between an abstract and a story, is something that I remember Balanchine telling us in one sentence. It is wonderful to see Balanchine's Legacy being kept alive by his Followers.
Balanchine is a teacher and a role model. He tells us in language of Dance the minimum we need in order to react, and he activates our individual imagination, demanding full concentration from his audience. He respects Music, he respects Art, and he respects us. We just need to try to receive on as high a level as possible what is offered to us. The dancers and orchestra know that they are all united and involved in this important mission. Good Dance, like good music, has a clear structure and every movement has a meaning and a context. Balachine knows how to build pictures that stay in our mind .Every work of his has a beginning and an end. Works like Balanchine's are very rare, and you can always watch them again and again. His technique is classical but his choreography is modern and intelligent.
