Summary
Jerome Robbins, assisted by ballet master Jean-Pierre Frohlich, directs a rehearsal of two excerpts from Watermill. Live musicians perform the flute and percussion score. Edward Villella rehearses the first fifteen minutes of the ballet. Robbins gives comments and corrections to Villella and the musicians between two full run-throughs of the section and two further rehearsals of the opening five minutes. No corps dancers are present; Robbins and Frohlich rehearse the roles of the lantern-bearers. During a pause in the rehearsal, the camera pans over the musical instruments used to play the score. Brian Reeder and Diana White rehearse the pas de deux from the summer section of Watermill; another rehearsal of this pas de deux by Simone Schumacher and Gordon Stevens follows.
