Women:

4. "finger" fairy variation from Sleeping Beauty (eek! anyone know what I'm referring to?)

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


Yes the "Finger Fairy" variation is the Fee Violente (Violent Fairy - 5th Variation).

This is a good topic and it's been years--should be revived.
ergo--
Polyhymnia from Apollo
the 'polka' variation from Ballo della Regina
the man's variation from the 'Baiser' Divertimento
My One and Only from Who Cares?
everything from La Source
Oberon (the Scherzo) from Midsummer (Balanchine)
the 'jumping variation' (Nerina's) from Birthday Offering
the Third Shade from Bayadere
the sixth variation (the presto, more or less) from Divertimento no. 15
Verdy's (La Fileuse) from Emeralds
LeClercq's (third, I think) from the first Valse-Fantaisie
the 'alternative' Black Swan variation (minor, oboe or perhaps EH solo, far more brilliant) often done by Russian ballerinas in place of the 'Sound of Music' one
everything in Glinka Pas de Trois
Balanchine's Dewdrop and Sugar Plum
Romeo's Act I solo at the ball (MacMillan)
several from Winter Dreams (MacMillan)
ballerina in The Concert
Flower Festival (both)
etc....

That's my favorite fairy too! Love the 2nd Shade in Bayadere also. Raymonda's scarf and also her final Hungarian dance are favorites too. There are so many. Kitri variations, Aurora's Rose Adagio (if that can be considered a variation), etc. Hard to choose just one favorite!!!
