Swan Lake - which is your favourite?

As for myselv, my favourite version is the Kirov's with Yulia Makhalina and Igor Zelensky

and Zelensky were both very young and green in that tape. My favorite tape is with Konstantin Zaklinsky & Olga Tchyentchikova, filmed during the Wolf Trap Farm leg of the Kirov's 1986 North American tour. I saw her live with Yevgeny Neff a few weeks earlier, when they were at the Shrine in Los Angeles. I taped it from the PBS Great Performances telecast. Zhanna Aypova was in the corps de ballet. She was in the pas de trois, and was as one of the little swans . That corps was superior to the corps in the Makhalina/Zelensky tape, and the one dancing now - if you can imagine that!
