Great Performances

When you’re talking about great performances in the collection, acting is naturally the first thing that comes to mind. But there are plenty of other kinds of shows on our shelves deserving of the spotlight, whether concerts by rock icons (the Rolling Stones, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix), modern dance by the regal Martha Graham, or Mozart’s opera The Magic Flute, as staged and captured in all its beauty by none other than Ingmar Bergman. We are proud to present a selection of spellbinding music and dance, Criterion-style. Please hold your applause until the intermission.
