the grigorovich staging is dated in this entry as '91, for gracheva and stepanenko as nikiya, vetrov as solor and bilova as gamzatti.

Thanks for all the interesting information. I'd forgotten that Semyonova had danced Nikiya, but knew nothing about the '43, '77 and '88 stagings.

The Kirov dancer executes it well and the vocabulary is very clear. The Royal dancer executes is also well and in very clean manner, and the changes to the choreography (the last bourree step is replaced by temps lié and then retiré) are very esthetic. Then I watched the Bolshoi's and, well, I wondered what happened there. The arms during the first diagonale, the footwork in general and the changes in choreography (jeté at the end of pas couru replaced with piqué arabesque) left me disappointed. Is this how it is normally performed by the Bolshoi or was the choreography changed for this soloist?

That might violate copyright laws.

It sounds harsh, and I don't like the rule either, but if we don't adhere to it strictly, we run a risk of legal liability.
Everyone's cooperation is greatly appreciated.
