Afternoon of a Faun

The wonderful video of Gillian Murphy as Odette that Mary posted on her blog a couple of days ago got me hunting around for Youtube for ballet treasures. Click here to see a long clip of Jacques D'Amboise and Tanaquil LeClercq in Jerome Robbins' version of Afternoon of a Faun. The less-than-perfect video quality can't obscure how beautiful they were.

Beautiful. I really enjoyed that. Ballet is good for whatever ails you.

It is! Hard on the dancers, I guess, but for the rest of us, pure magic.
