perhaps you are thinking of the tape listed below in which kolpakova is recorded as aurora, late in her career. there is other footage, excerpts only i think, in which kolpakova dances w/ soloviev in THE SLEEPING BEAUTY, but again she dances aurora opposite soloviev's prince desire. as i say, i've never read anywhere where lilac fairy was in kolpakova's repertory.
here's are the credits for the complete SLEEPING BEAUTY on video w/ kolpakova:

Thanks I will go and hunt it down and buy it before I loose it.
p.s. I don't suppose you know where I can get hold of the tape you listed above as that is the exact one that I had a recording of.

For some time, this Kirov-Mariinsky tape was being sold through Kultur. Try www.kulturvideo.com
It contains the Fyodor Lopukhov/Soviet Era version of the Lilac Fairy variation, not the Nikolai Sergeyev version from the 1921 Diaghilev Ballet, more often danced in the west (see Royal Ballet version for this, also on Kultur video). The true Petipa version (with grand jetes, followed by simple promenade around the stage) is not on commercial tape yet,ie.e., what we see in the Mariinsky's new-old 1890 staging. Maybe next year.
