Summary
Dame Alicia Markova reconstructs George Balanchine's choreography for the role of the Nightingale, which she created in his ballet Le chant du rossignol (The song of the nightingale) for Serge Diaghilev's Ballets Russes in 1925 (premiere: June 17, 1925, Théatre Gaieté Lyrique, Paris). She begins by describing the action (based on the fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen) as the music is played, then works intensively with dancer Iohna Loots on the nightingale's variation and pas de deux with Death, a role intended to be performed by a female dancer. Historians Millicent Hodson and Kenneth Archer, who assisted in the reconstruction, appear briefly on camera
