i've not heard of another, and know of no footage of m. liepa as rothbart.
i have done a cursory check of a few ref. books - in russian and in english - none lists rothbart as a role of liepa's.

Does anyone recall a full-length performance of The Bolshoi's Swan Lake starring Plisetsksaya as Odette/Odile and Maris Liepa as Von Rothbart from the 1970's being broadcast on the A&E channel? Does anyone know if this is available on VHS or DVD? Thanks!
If I can let me ask a related question. Does anyone have info on the last year Plistetskaya danced the complete Swan Lake? I saw her in Montreal and NYC during the early-mid 70s but only in Act 2. But this may have been due to touring issues; she may still have been dancing the complete ballet in Moscow or even on other tours.

Her pirouettes are hysterical.
They close up on her face and you see her feathers flapping up and down each spot of the head.
