Here's a comparison of the Black Swan pdd:

Beriosova and Nureyev:

Recent RB HD with Zanowsky and Kish:

In this case I think the technique of Beriosova and Nureyev more than hold up against the modern comparison. And this includes physique -- Beriosova is tall, leggy, with beautiful feet and extension. Her terre a terre technique is IMO stronger than Zanowsky's -- she goes through Odile's variation with more speed and less effort. Only thing is the passe/releve is consistently lower in past generations.
