Finding Balanchine's Lost Ballets

Elizabeth Kattner

University Press of Florida

This final chapter discusses the merits of the project, showing how examining George Balanchine’s earliest ballets allows us a better understanding of his mature works. Comparisons are drawn between his lost ballets and those that are in the repertory: Prodigal Son, Apollo, Serenade, Jewels, Stravinsky Violin Concerto, and others. This conclusion shows the merits of a dance reconstruction project like Funeral March and demonstrates how it enables historians, dance artists, and audiences to gain greater depth in their understanding of ballet as an art form.

Keywords:   Funeral March, Prodigal Son, Stravinsky Violin Concerto, dance reconstruction
