Summary Violette Verdy and Conrad Ludlow discuss the creating of this work, the first rehearsals where they were understudies, how Balanchine choreographed by allowing for individual expression, how many weeks it took to create this work, partnering in this work, how the different versions came about, importance of preserving the original unique choreography that Balanchine coached multiple times during rehearsals, how Balanchine emphasized spacing more than choreography in this ballet, and how this work has become a great showpiece
