I like the videos of Tatiana Terekhova and Nina Ananiashvili. Unfortunately, I'm a bit young to have seen Plisetskaya!

both terrific (Terekhova used to do triple fouettes in the coda, among other things)
I also admired Cynthia Gregory as Kitri. IMO this particular part is only suited to overwhelmingly brilliant technicians (not that any of the dancers above were ONLY technicians-- this was among their other attributes--) who enjoy showy firework displays; it's imperative that the tricks be tossed off.

On the tape I have of her, she dances Kitri with a joyous, impish flair and her beautiful legs and feet move as if the floor were on fire.
The blond adonis who dances with her is not so shabby either!

I also like Kurgapkina very much in the first act on video, even though it was filmed at the end of her career.
