Will you do the Fandango?

It's the In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida of its epoch.

Nice! I've always loved Bolero, and still do, but this is the first time I've ever seen a performance of it. It struck me how much this would be a wonderful video to have kids watch, to learn different orchestral instruments. We learned from listening to the Basil Rathbone version of Peter and the Wolf.

Also, violins played like mandolins. I had no idea this was going on.

Also, too, all those sunken-cheeked French faces!

Also, too, also, BEEHIVE HAIR!
