LIEBESTRAUM appears on programs for the weeks beginning February 16, 23, and March 2, along with ‘other dances produced by George Balanchine (Director of Serge Diaghileff’s Russian Ballet).’The Coliseum was distinguished by having ‘the finest revolving stage in the world.’ In his setting of LIEBESTRAUM, Balanchine used the stage as a giant phonograph record, with a small dog in the center as ‘His Master’s Voice,’ and the women as phonograph needles.
