"This is a Must-Have for ballet lovers and ballet historians alike. The DVD combines two prior VHS releases onto one DVD:"Complete Bell Telephone Hour Appearances" and "Maria Tallchief in Montreal."Tallchief made 5 guest appearances on the Bell Telephone Hour, with a starry assemblage of leading male dancers. The performances were broadcast in 1959,1961,1962,1964 and 1966. The Bell Telephone Hour performances include: Adagio from the "Scotch" Symphony (with André Eglevsky) music: Mendelssohn; choreography: George Balanchine © The George Balanchine Trust telecast of April 9, 1959Grand pas de deux from Don Quixote (with Erik Bruhn) music: Minkus; choreography: Marius Petipa telecast of January 6, 1961Pas de deux from Flower Festival in Genzano (with Rudolf Nureyev) music: Helsted & Paulli; choreography: Erik Bruhn, after Bournonville telecast of January 19, 1962Allegro brillante to Tchaikovsky's Third Piano Concerto (with Nicholas Magallanes) music: Tchaikovsky; choreography: George Balanchine © The George Balanchine Trust telecast of February 25, 1964"Balcony Scene" pas de deux from Romeo and Juliet (with Conrad Ludlow) music: Prokofiev; choreography: John Butler telecast of February 13, 1966The second part of this DVD is "Maria Tallchief in Montreal."These magnificent performances are the earliest known recordings of Tallchief's magnificent dancing. The performances were live telecasts from the archives of Radio-Canda, recorded between 1954 and 1963. Contents include: 1963 Pas de deux from Les Sylphides - Maria Tallchief, Royes Fernandez music: Chopin; choreography: Michel Fokine telecast of November 5, 1957Pas de dix - Maria Tallchief, André Eglevsky, and Corps de Balletmusic: Glazunov; choreography: George Balanchine after Marius Petipa telecast of March 25, 1954Swan Lake - Scenes from Act II - Maria Tallchief, André Eglevsky music: Tchaikovsky; choreography: George Balanchine after Lex IvanovTotal running time of the DVD is about 83 minutes. That may seem short, but for these kinds of rare recordings, you'll treasure and cherish every moment!"

"Maria Tallchief is a beautiful ballerina and her talents are shown in this great CD. I saw a little of it on PBS and it was so entrancing that I ordered the whole CD. A must for any ballet fan!"
This is just exactly what I wanted.
