Ballet in the News/History on Youtube

Recommended Posts

Now that Youtube is official and the clips are (mostly) legally licensed, I have noticed that all sorts of old stuff is being uploaded.  Thames News, for example, has posted some pretty old stuff including this:

 

 

It's a news item about a royal gala at Covent Garden in 1986 (I think) which was a performance of Ashton's last production of Cinderella.  Nice rehearsal footage and an interview with Anthony Dowell.

The clip was uploaded earlier this year and the quality is very good for a change.

 

(Sorry about the link but I've forgotten how to do it neatly - could some nice moderator direct me to the instructions?)

 

Thanks

 

Linda

The ROH Database gives the 16th December 1987 as the date of the first performance of this production.

Well most of the stuff I've seen lately has been uploaded by the copyright owners.  There used to be a lot of stuff of doubtful provenance but the clips have been removed and replaced by a notice saying why they were taken down.  For instance, the clip mentioned above comes from Thames so I assume it's quite legal to link to it.
