Series Info

PBS's signature performing-arts series showcases dance, drama, comedy and music ranging from orchestral and operatic to Broadway and the blues. The Lanford Wilson drama `The Rimers of Eldritch' was its first presentation and `Brideshead Revisited' was perhaps its most famous. There have been more than 600 `Great Performances' all told. Some might have been only `reasonable performances' (as Robin Williams once quipped), but many others were distinguished, among them some 50 Emmy nominees.
