How I wish I could have seen them dance. They dance so beautifully together - so serious, so sincere.  In the service of their art completely.

I re-looked over this thread--I don't think anyone mentioned Fracci-Bruhn. I would add that Makarova also had a very fine partnership with Dowell, though I also loved him with Kirkland and of course (mentioned above) Sibley. He was a great partner!

I was going to mention Fracci-Bruhn, Drew, but you beat me to it! The early bird catches the worm....

 

I would also like to underscore Maximova-Vasiliev, Fonteyn-Nureyev, Kirkland-Baryshnikov,and Ferri-Bocca, and today, Vishneva-Gomes. I am surely leaving out names that will come to me in the middle of the night.

 

Wouldn't it be wonderful if a perfect partner could be found for Veronika Part? She is so deserving.

 

Also, still searching for the perfect partner for David Hallberg....

 Not perfect, but I think Osipova Hallberg is plenty exciting. What keeps it from the pantheon is how little they dance together--a partnership needs nurturing.

 

I am sad to say that though I have seen Vishneva and seen Gomez, I have never seen them dance together.
