The materials collected for the Popular Balanchine project include essays written on individual works and summary essays on the project (see "Overview of the project") or collected titles in a particular medium (see "Hollywood films"). Included also are correspondence, print materials such as playbills, souvenir programs, reviews, articles, and book excerpts; graphic materials such as photographs, drawings, set designs and costume sketches; and other materials such as music (both published and unpublished, some annotated), production notes, prompt books, scripts, and scenarios. Almost evey title includes oral history interview transcripts and some include typescripts of published or archival materials, interview summaries, sources of original materials, and compilations of notices and reviews. Most of the materials are collected in binders while some dossiers include additional oversize materials. The first item in each binder is an inventory of the dossier's contents. The bulk of the materials are reproductions (photocopies or digital scans) but the collection does include original artifacts such as playbills, souvenir programs, photographs, music, print excerpts, and some correspondence.« Less
