NYC Ballet – The Perfect Home

50 years ago the New York State Theater opened and became the home of the city’s ballet company.  This film, commissioned by the New York City Ballet and made by Buffalo Picture House takes a fond look at the last half century with contributions from some of the people who were there at the beginning.  I particularly enjoyed the contribution by Jacques D’amboise who was the principal male dancer on the first night and who still remembers his jejune clanger when interviewed for TV directly after the performance.
