At last year's Works & Process on Raymonda, Kolpakova noted that while R. had five variations, it was not a terribly fatiguing role. I take her at her word. Kitri demands a lot of exertion, and Aurora needs a sustained level of energy. Odette spends practically the whole ballet on her left leg.

And while we're at it let's give a round of applause to the corps de ballet as well, I never truly appreciated how long they were onstage for in Act II until I did it myself.
