Performance note: Press cuttings state that the repertoire for the Nanjing performances consisted of five ballets on rotation: 'Coppélia', 'Giselle', 'Gala Performance', 'Winter Night' and either 'Les Sylphides' or 'Pas des Déesses' (the fifth ballet was translated as 'Angels' Steps'). Patricia Dyer is mentioned as dancing Swanhilda in 'Coppélia' during the run. The conductor was David Ellenberg.
