I watch quite often the older multi colored version of the ballet-(as well as the all white 1973's Clifford's video).  Here, in the POB, when I watch the first movement in red, I swear I can "see" Toumanova in the solo ballerina, fouettes and everything!-(which was her trademark). She even looks like pics of Toumanova I have seen! Who is she..?

a review in the Financial Times of this POB bill notes:

<<Young new étoile Amandine Albisson contributed a bright first movement alongside the elegant Mathieu Ganio>>

At its 1947 Paris premiere, the first movement of LE PALAIS DE CRISTAL was designated "Les Rubis" and led by Lycette Darsonva (with Alexandre Kalioujny), the second, "Les diamants noirs" was led by Toumanova (with Roger Ritz).

Oooh...thanks for the notes, RG.  I have never heard that name-(Albisson).  I thought Toumanova was the lead in Les Rubis.  Well...it was fun "visualizing" Albisson as Toumanova  in the original color scheme of the ballet.  :wub:

She also danced Odette/Odile in POB's televised/streamable Swan Lake.  Links should be found on this forum.
