In Rehearsal

On my way to the theater to buy my last ballet ticket of the fall season, I stopped at the library to see the exhibition of photographs: "Martha Swope In Rehearsal."
The NYCB program tomorrow is Apollo, Agon, and Rubies. How perfect to see photos, including the one above, of Balanchine and Stravinsky rehearsing Arthur Mitchell and Diana Adams in Agon. 
The Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center has acquired the archives of Martha Swope which consists of over 1.5 million images!!!  It was a lovely little exhibition (in the downstairs gallery) leaving me with the wish to see lots more - it is on until January 26, 2013.
