Allegra Kent: my favorite Odette in those years. She was unique, unlike anyone else dancing the role at NYCB at that time. Thanks for the photo, rg.

[Edited to add:} I'm talking about the late 50s and early-to-mid 60s. However, this seems like a photo from later in both dancers' careers. Am I right in this?

as indicated, the photo is undated.

my guess would be the late '60s, maybe early '70s, when Kent would variously come and go from performing w/ the company.

& d'Amboise has way of making us look at him considering her... without ever taking away from her... is it the tilt of the head? Is it the dark colouring?

another NYCB photo of Balanchine's SWAN LAKE with Kent (here supported by Conrad Ludlow as the Prince), also undated.

if mem. serves Teena McConnell and Marnee Morris can be seen immediately behind Kent and Ludlow.
