I have the POB version and just love the dancer who performs the Lilac Fairy variation in the prologue. Can someone give me her name? Thanks.
I think she's fabulous, too. Her name is Marie-Agnès Gillot, and she's got her own website.
Didya notice she returns as Silver in the Precious Stones pas de cinq, which is one of the best segments in the entire production? (It's track 25 on the DVD.) Here Nureyev created some really neat stuff for Mr Gold.
