I hope Marc, or someone, can give more details on her career. I've seen only pieces on tape -- that "Corsaire," and a tiny bit of her Maria in "Fountain of Baksichirai" (which I'm sure I've spelled wrong). She's also Aurora in "Sleeping Beauty" on an oddly truncated version that is, or at least as, available commercially (they cut the SOLOS from Bluebird, and the dancers are Makarova and Panov!!!!, and then they cut the adagio from the grand pas de deux; Sizova dances with Soloviev)

She is indeed an inspiration, as mentioned, and a very good (and beloved) teacher. Her students revere her.
I have, in addition to the videos mentioned, a video of her dancing the lead in Maritenka -- so light, strong and lovely! She was a ballerina who knew how to fly!

Dudinskaya probably coached all the leading ballerinas of that time in some of their roles. Sizova was a great admirer of Shelest's, however.

I never saw this on any commercial video release, though.

But Sizova's beautiful. I'm sorry she suffered such a loss.

There exists a video of her in La Viviandere (probably labeled as Markitanka, as the Russians sometimes call it). I think it is one of those "best of Russian ballet"-type videos, from the late 1970s or 80s. Sizova is dancing the lead rather late in her career and is, of course, exceptional.
