][attachmentid=18]Riabouchinska and Kriza in 'Les Sylphides'

This scratchy old photograph was taken during a performance of 'Les Sylphides' during the 1945 season of Ballet Theatre at the old Metropolitan Opera House in NYC. Riabouchinska's performance was legendary in this ballet; less known is the performance of John Kriza. He remains my favorite in the role and was the most Byronesque of anyone I have seen.

Those sleeves look almost as full as the ones Royes is wearing in that video with Tallchief.
