Summary
Jerome Robbins, assisted by ballet master Jean-Pierre Frohlich, directs a rehearsal of Watermill. The whole ballet is rehearsed, with run-throughs of sections (opening, spring, summer, fall, finale) followed by comments, corrections and repetitions. Robbins gives corrections to the musicians as well as the dancers. At the beginning of the second cassette, he works extensively with Kipling Houston and Ethan Stiefel on the nightmare sequence.
