U-Matic and VHS videocassettes, open reel videotapes, and one audiocassette. Recordings of performances, rehearsals, news segments and coverage, interviews, and a commercial. Also includes one videocassette of a presentation given to the Chicago City Ballet Board of Directors. Visual materials from the 1970s are probably from the Lyric Opera Ballet, as these predate the founding of the Chicago City Ballet.
