Re: Symphony in C, one should really give the Balanchine ballet a shot, it's one of his most famous choreographies.

this 1973 video may look a little rusty, but it does have Allegra Kent and other big Balanchine era stars.

Re: Bizet's widow Génévieve, yes, she was a model for Mme Guermantes in Proust, but really it's hard to think of someone with a more grief-stricken life than Génévieve Halévy. Pretty much everybody she ever talked to died.
