Summary
Maria Tallchief danced the Sanguinic pas de deux with Nicholas Magallanes in Ballet Society's second performance of The four temperaments, and created the ballerina role in Sylvia pas de deux, partnered by Magallanes, for New York City Ballet in 1950. She works on fine points of the choreography of these ballets with current principal dancers of New York City Ballet. In a brief interview she discusses aspects of the two ballets, including Kurt Seligmann's costumes for the first performances of The four temperaments, and André Eglevsky's introduction of a more fluid style of port de bras in Sylvia pas de deux.
