Ray, I agree with you that it is a good review. I always admire Kisselgoff writing about the Russian companies, and I always have absolute faith in what she says about the productions.

Kisselgoff is also correct about Zacharova's performance tending towards formalism, but that may also have been because of Zacharova's and Korsuntsev's failure to provide dramatic detail or to relate to each other psychologically. In the White Swan PDD, for example, there was little if any hint that Odette had to be won or tamed by Siegfried, etc., and at the conclusion little if any psychological interplay between them either, although Korsuntsev provided very solid partnering from the physical point of view.
