Synopsis
Prince Siegfried and his friends hunt swans by the lakeside at midnight. The Prince sees Odette, Queen of the Swans, gliding over the surface of the lake and prepares to shoot, but on reaching the bank the swan changes into a beautiful young woman. She entreats the Prince to spare her, explaining that an evil enchanter has transformed her and her friends into swans. Only at midnight are they permitted to resume their human form for a short time. Siegfried promises his protection, and the swan maidens dance to express their gratitude. Odette and Siegfried fall in love, but as dawn breaks Odette and the maidens resume their existence as swans and fly away. The Prince and his friends gaze sadly after them.

Synopsis
The ballet, like the score, is divided into five parts: a theme and four variations. The variations reflect the temperaments or the humors promised by the title: "Melancholic," "Sanguinic," "Phlegmatic," "Choleric." The choreography is basically classical throughout but Balanchine has used traditional actions in new and surprising sequences and has departed from classical action where necessary to give clear definition to the temperaments and their essential colorings. The chief figure in the "Melancholic" variation is a man. He moves alone through movements which indicate loss, uncertainty, search. Subsequently, he is joined by four girls but, at the close of the variation, his melancholy solitude is re-established. "Sanguinic" is for a ballerina and her partner and this variation is open, bright, and free. In "Phlegmatic," the solo male dancer moves limply through his sequences, using his hands aimlessly, doubling up, resting. A small ensemble stirs him briefly from his lassitude. In "Choleric," the ballerina moves with quick, angry, almost impulsive movements, joined shortly by the entire company for the finale.

A Triumph of Love Entire Cast and Eros...........Patricia Mideke
Synopsis
The first episode treats with a corps of pretty Amazons, headed by a handsome female captain and her two lieutenants, whose camp is invaded by a heroic-looking bandit. The ladies capture him but his charm is such as they fall in love with him. He, however, spurns their advances and even dares to say "No" to the captain herself.
The second scene carries us to the home of a lovely and restless lady who hurries her husband on his way in a clear demonstration that someone else is expected momentarily. As soon as her husband departs, she admits a gentleman, who pursues her amorously. Two more suitors follow behind--a sailor and a student. The husband arrives to further com?plicate the situation. The third and final scene is designed to resolve these mixed up love affairs and Cupid arrives to prove that love conquers all.
