Character error 

When Amelia finishes her first solo part in the climactic Don Quixote pas de deux, her mother (Shirley MacLaine) clearly yells, "Bravo." As a ballerina herself, the mother should have yelled, "Brava."

When Baryshnikov finishes his continuum pirouettes at the Coda of Don Quixote his hair is all messy. At the Camera cut the immediate new shot he is perfectly brushed and gelled up.

Revealing mistakes 

When everybody is warming up on stage before the Gala Performance, you can see Baryshnikov practicing his jumps for "Le Corsaire" and is already wearing the costume. However, the program shows that he first dances the Grand Pas de Deux of Sleeping Beauty.
