Can you help with an answer?

In 1980,81,or 82. . .Makarova & Dowell were scheduled

to perform Swan Lake in San Francisco. For some

reason, Dowell could not perform one evening.

He was replaced that evening, either by Nureyev or

Baryshnikov. Was it Nureyev?

I am trying to find this anwer. . . .

Thank you

"On Feb. 15, 1979, the Nureyev legend in San Francisco reached its climactic moment. Anthony Dowell, who was to dance with Natalia Makarova in the American Ballet Theater's "Swan Lake," had become ill the day before.

To replace him, Nureyev was flown from New York, at Makarova's insistence. There was no time for a newspaper announcement, but by word of mouth balletomanes filled the Opera House and its standing room for a Thursday matinee that became historic. "

From: "Nureyev a Hero of S.F. Dance" by Robert Commanday.
The San Francisco Chronicle
. 7 January 1993.
