Often regarded as the 'Father of American ballet', George Balanchine's legacy lives on in his prolific body of choreographic work. Creating over 450 works, Balanchine is wildely considered to be the foremost contemporary choreographer of the 20th century. Through rare archival audio and video footage, interviews, film, and photographs, this film traces Balanchine's life from his youth at the Mariinsky Theater, through his work for Hollywood and Broadway, to his ultimate creation of the renowned New York City Ballet. It also focuses on the themes of his work and his thoughts on dance, using interviews with the choreographer himself. Features selections of his vast repertory of ballets, including Chaconne, Agon, Symphony in C, Serenade, Apollo, and A Midsummer Night's Dream, amongst others.

The film traces his training in St. Petersburg, his early works for Ballets Russes of Diaghilev, and his long creative career in America. It has many commentaries by Balanchine himself about his creative process, with many archive film clips of his works and rehearsal scenes. His collaboration with Stravinsky is also depicted. He collaborated with the composer on thirty-nine works out of the total of over four hundred works he choreographed.
This is a fascinating documentary about this great and prolific choreographer. However, my regret is that there are only a small number of his works currently available on DVD, e.g. "Jewels" (danced splendidly by the Paris Opera Ballet and issued by Opus Arte), "Balanchine" (2 separate DVDs of his works from Warner Music Vision) and "A Midsummer Night's Dream" (BBC/Opus Arte).
