Firestone Dances: Historic Ballet Performances

2008 NR

Culled from dance highlights of the 1962-63 incarnation of "The Voice of Firestone" series, this collection features the U.S. televised solo debut of Rudolf Nureyev as well as appearances by the famed team of Jacques D'Amboise and Melissa Hayden. These and other distinguished dancers -- including Maria Tallchief, Oleg Tupine Caprice and Kirsten Simone -- perform to the music of Tchaikovsky, Debussy, Rossini, Pugni and Minkus.
