'Tis the season to begin thinking about buying presents for yourself, and Haglund has a great suggestion:
How about a video recording of Veronika Part and Marcelo Gomes in the White Swan PdD? Yes, Folks, the superb YAGP-produced documentary Ballet's Greatest Hits is now available on iTunes for purchase ($19.99 USD) or rental ($4.99 USD) although prices may vary slightly depending on your country.
Haglund'eelers in more than 20 countries across the Universe and beyond can snap up what may be the last opportunity to ever again see this sublime-beyond-words duo perform the PdD for which they will be remembered past eternity. As you may recall, there are a few other not-so-shabby performances in the documentary as well.
Please let Haglund know if you cannot purchase it in your particular country. He'll pass your info on to the YAGP honchos so that the possibility of a surreptitious transferral can be explored. Who knows, it could all end up as an episode on Flesh and Bone – ballet contraband, but The Feds will probably call it pointeless contraband.
YAGP should distribute/sell/give to teachers sheafs of those little iTunes store cards that one always sees on the counters in Starbucks that would be good for a single rental of Ballet's Greatest Hits. Maybe a quantity discount would make it doable for most schools to give as gifts to all students during the holidays.
