Originally released in 1995, this documentary opens a window into New York City’s prestigious American Ballet Theatre—its relentless rehearsals, its administrative gears, the lives of its dancers and instructors, and finally, its public performances.

The film is accompanied by an exclusive, pre-recorded conversation between director Frederick Wiseman and documentarian Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi (Free Solo).
