scan of photo submitted to a Chicago newspaper in advance of appearances by the Leningrad Kirov Ballet on its first U.S. tour, no real identifications of dancers.
not exactly a sharp photo but the deep, backbent poses etc. still make the tableau vivid.
at the time, at least on the U.S. tour, Inna Zubkovskaya was a prominent as the Lilac Fairy, tho' i cannot say that this photo documents her performing the role.

As usual..."Sol Hurok presents...".. :thumbsup

The two captions are very interesting... The "Leningrad Kirov Ballet" hand in hand with "The Leningrad Mariinsky Ballet". I wonder if this was Hurok's marketing idea-(considering that maybe he thought that the American ballet connoisseurs would be attracted by the old name)- or the Soviets', just for the same reason.
