The original cast of Prodigal Son-in Ragtime.
A ballet created for London Festival Ballet (English National Ballet) in 1974.
No video tape exists of the original cast performance so I've pieced together this montage - mostly from contact prints.
The music, Scott Joplin's SOLACE, is the music originally used in the scene.
