Bacharach then teams up with famed ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev who partners with Bettie de Jong to perform a circus-themed ballet to Bacharach's music from, "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid."

Bacharach then talks with Barbra Streisand about her work and her love of recording, and she sings "One Less Bell to Answer" with Burt's accompaniment, followed by "A House is Not a Home."
