Finding Balanchine's Lost Ballets

Elizabeth Kattner

University Press of Florida

This chapter introduces the reader to the ballets that George Balanchine created in Russian. It contains a literature review of both English-language primary sources by dancers Alexandra Danilova, Tamara Geva, and Yuri Slonimsky and Russian-language primary sources by Vera Kostrovitskaya and Yuri Slonimsky, as well as other primary and secondary sources. The idea of the possibility of reconstructing lost Balanchine works is addressed and the project, Envisioning Funeral March, is discussed. The steps for reconstructing a lost dance, including traditional archival research, studio research, and finally staging the completed dance in the context of Balanchine’s early choreography is discussed.

Keywords:   Alexandra Danilova, Tamara Geva, George Balanchine, Yuri Slonimsky, Vera Kostrovitskaya, choreography
