Summary
Maria Tallchief, a former principal ballerina with the New York City Ballet, coaches a current principal, Helene Alexopoulos, in excerpts from the leading roles she created in two ballets choreographed by George Balanchine to the music of Igor Stravinsky: Firebird (1949) and Orpheus (1948). In the interview sections, she analyzes details of the choreography, noting the Russian folk flavor in the berceuse, the importance of hand and arm movements and épaulement in Balanchine's choreography, and his emphasis on the proper execution of transitional steps, including walking and running. Having been married to Balanchine at the time, she was able to observe at close hand the creative process that produced both ballets
