Finding Balanchine's Lost Ballets

Elizabeth Kattner

University Press of Florida

In this chapter, the transition from studying George Balanchine’s early ballets using traditional archival research to initial studio research is discussed. It demonstrates how photographs in conjunction with the musical score and textual descriptions of the dance can be used to create combinations that, while not perfect, can represent dances that are otherwise lost. The first Tragic section of Funeral March is discussed, and the idea that there is enough material about this first third of the dance to accurately be restaged is presented.

Keywords:   Funeral March, ballets, George Balanchine
