The choreographer had summed up the piece as "a wild, untamed youth learns nobility through art. " That description could easily apply to dancer Jacques d'Amboise, who joined City Ballet at 15, was cast as Apollo eight years later and had 24 roles made for him during his three-plus decades with the troupe.

"Davidsbuendlertaenze." Home Vision. $39.95. Seven years ago, George Balanchine created for New York City Ballet this intimate, brooding, one-act masterwork set to Robert Schumann's piano cycle. Initially a series of unusual showpiece duets (with the women dancing first in heeled shoes and later in pointe slippers), the ballet soon darkens into a neo-Romantic abstraction of conflicts in Schumann's personal life and career.
