For you, what features (physical, artistic and otherwise) should a ballerina possess in order to impersonate this role?

Thought it might be interesting, as i hear so much about such-and-such dancer being unsuited for the role from the start due to such-and such unsuitable feature.

Depends. Is the swan a big, powerful bird? "How DARE you?!"

Is it a delicate animal? "Please don't hurt me!"

Yes, Odette is a tough one -- there have been so many great Odettes, and each one has marked an ideal for her place and time. I hope people will ring in with their favorites.
