I've put up Geoff Whitlock's biography of Yelena Yevteyeva, leading dancer of the Kirov Ballet from the late sixties till 1993. http://users.skynet....evteyeva10.html.
She features in the 1968 "Swan Lake" film with Markovsky and Panov, and also dances Princess Florine in "The Sleeping Beauty" with Kolpakova and Berezhnoi. She now acts as a coach at the Mariinsky, and has worked with Yulia Makhalina, Natalia Sologub and Daria Pavlenko, among others. As a professor at the Vaganova Academy her pupils include Svetlana Zakharova and Daria Pavlenko.

At the same time you can also vote for your favorite Russian Nutcracker. :grinning: For Ballet Lovers Only

Thank you for visiting.

Oh, I will definitely keep the poll open until Washington DC will have savoured the Simonov Nutcracker so that votes can be done in all fairness :grinning:

Yelena Yevteyeva was in my opinion one of the last great artists of stature of the Kirov ballet. Altynai Asylmuratova was the last.
Yevteyeva on her last visit to London danced a Saturday matinee Giselle at the Coliseum which all of the regular audience counted as one of the greatest Giselle performances they had ever seen.
When I see Yevteyeva accompanied by Komleva when the Kirov visit London. I think of an artistic age long gone which was graced those two dancers and Zubkovskaya, Kolpakhova, Sizova, Semyenov and Soloviev and many more.
