Summary
Robbins works with Morton Gould on the music for Variations on I'm old fashioned. Robbins and Gould view a videotape of a New York City Ballet studio rehearsal filmed on on Oct. 1 (for this tape, see *MGZIA 4-6050). The following excerpts from Variations on I'm old fashioned appear on the tape: a pas de deux by Kistler and D'Amboise, nicknamed Back to back, which was cut from the final version; the ensemble nicknamed Tango, which was also cut; the fourth variation, also performed by Kistler and D'Amboise; the sixth variation, nicknamed Bongo, performed by Cook; the eighth variation, a pas de deux by Lavery and Nichols. Robbins and Gould discuss the order of the variations and the quality of the choreography. For the remainder of this session, see *MGZIA 4-6143, *MGZIA 4-6144, *MGZIA 4-6155, and *MGZIA 4-6156.
