THE REAL McCOY
Choreography by Ei.iot Fei.d Setting and Costumes by Roubex TerArutunian
Music by George Gershwin Lighting by Thomas Skelton
Is it an earthquake or simply a shock
Is it the good turtle soup or merely the mock!
It is a cocktail this feeling of joy
or is what I feel the Real McCoy
Have I the right hunch or have I the wrong
Will it be Bach I shall hear or just a Cole Porter song
At Long Last Love by Cole Porter, 1938 Copyright by Chappel & Co., Inc., N.Y.C.

Some dance with the heart, others with the heels.
Choreography by Eliot Feld Music by Frederick Chopin
Costumes by RoUBEN TkrArutunian Lighting by Thomas Skklton
This description of the Mazurka is found in Dr. E. W. Shallenberg's book, Frederic Chopin:
It began with a procession in which the dancers made gliding passes and stamped their feet. In the second stage it broke up into pairs and solo dances; these dances were of prime importance for here the perjormers were on their mettle and here the innumer?able small dreams were enacted which delighted Chopin--"Ou Vamoiir se mcle aux douleurs dc la patrie" ("Where love and the melancholy of the land meet"). These dances lasted an hour or more before reformed at the end.

About the Company
Organized in 1973, the Kliot Feld Ballet serves as the resident dance company of the New York Shakespeare Festival, and toured Mexico, Central and South America as the United States' official cultural presentation in Latin America during the Bicentennial year. It has also performed for network television in the "Live at Wolf Trap" series, and in the Public Broadcasting Service project, "Dance for Camera." The company's studio and headquarters are located on lower Broadway in New York City, as is its New Ballet School, where free classes will be offered to New York City school children.
