a complete picture of the dancer's life with stunning performances
16 December 2000 | by (Dayton, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Combining scenes of classroom warmup with segments of four ballets, this video is different from most performance videos. Particular barre exercises are demonstrated, then applied in the performances so the viewer can see how what the dancer does in class manifests on the stage. Dressing room scenes show the commitment required of the dancer off stage as well as on. FIELD FIGURES, a modern work by choreographer Glen Tetley, includes footage of Tetley working with the dancers in the rehearsal hall. In addition to stunning performances by Rudolf Nureyev, Carla Fracci, Margot Fonteyn, and Deanne Bergsma, this video gives a better picture of a dancer's dedication than the romance of performance.
