My first was Stephanie Saland. I'm lucky that I've never seen a Swanhilde that I haven't liked.

I have a tie for my favorite: Judith Fugate (NYCB) and Maria Kochetkova (SFB).

Patricia McBride! First and Favorite. I'm still waiting to see Evgenia Obraztsova in the Bolshoi-Vikharev version; I'm betting that she will be spectacular, judging by an AI excerpt that she & Sarafanov performed in St Petersburg ca-2003.

My first Swanilda: Patricia Barker w/ PNB in 1990.

My favorite Swanilda: Maria Kochetkova w/ SFB in 2011.

A Swanilda on my radar: Misa Kuranaga, Boston Ballet.

I can't remember my first Swanilda (August 1985 at the RFH in London, LFB (now ENB)) but her Franz was Raymond Smith. Favourite Swanilda is harder but three of my favourites are Lucia Truglia, Ambra Vallo and Nao Sakuma
