The celebrated French ballerina Violette Verdy is partnered by Scott Douglas in a poignant Romeo and Juliet (1958), choreographed by the chief architect of modern French ballet, Serge Lifar, to the music of Tchaikovsky.
Two of the major French dancer-choreographers of the post-World War II era are also represented: Jean Babilée, who performs in his charming and acrobatic Balance à Trois (1965), and Janine Charrat, whose Préludes Nos 8 & 20, set to music from Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier, is danced by the French ballet star Claire Sombert (1965).
