I do not remember the name of the Blue Bird,though.
I also like Pankova, Terekhova and Semenyaka. For Blue Birds I would go for Yury Vetrov and Melnikov (sp?)

The Vetrov I mention is the one who dances opposite Bylova in the Bolshoi video (if I am not confusing names - this Bluebird has a very large travelling assemble, and very large travelling sisonnes, which are impressive).

The second time (when I saw Lezhnina), I remember seeing the Pugni pas de quatre. Among the dancers was the one who dances the first soloist in Raymonda in Bolshoi video (dream sequence - I do not remember her name). I liked her very, very much.

Almost certainly that would have been Olga Pavlova.

I saw Lezhnina live too. Her Florine and Aurora were classically pure.
When the Maryinsky came to L.A. in December 1992, they were celebrating
the 100th anniversary of 'Nutcracker.' She danced the most perfect
Masha (second only to Maximova's), that I ever saw.
The audience rose to it's feet. . . Unforgettable.
