does anyone know if the first semi-leading female character - in red - is the ballet's choreographer, nina anisimova (opposite chabukiani?) and is the partner of tatiana vecheslova (as nune?) - the only dancer named in the credits on screen - is n.zubkovsky (as karen?)?
there is much to admired on the compliation in addition to the somewhat rare footage of shelest.
the only film listed in the russian enclyclopedia of russian ballet is one from '59, should one presume that is the source of this excerpt?

i am embarrassed to say that i actually shared time on a panel in brookyn once w/ i.belsky and didn't recognize him.
i know chabukiani only from photos and the odd film.
oh well, better to be informed late than later.

Ulanova in Sylphides, Kolpakova in Cinderella and Nutcracker, Asylmuratova in Esmeralda ...
I had watched this earlier, but I think not all of it. I wanted to see Sizova in 'Fountain of Bakshisarai', but the other night watched again and the ones named above are what struck me most. Was watching because people are talking about Kolpikova in new DVD release of 'Raymonda', so I'm also looking at the tape of 'Sleeping Beauty'. I already like her in Rose Adagio for not snatching the roses at the end the way one ballerina does. Beautiful sets at the Kirov for this SB. Only thing I skipped was 'Fountain', which I think I can live without, if even the divine Sizova can bring it to more life than I saw here.
