Early 40's (?) Alicia Alonso picture.

Recommended Posts

is that one of the costumes from Eugene Berman for Giselle?

no..... it is safe to s ay it is not Berman. I don't recall ever seeing her in that costume with BT---I would guess it's from her early Havana days---she did a couple of ballets with them---"The General's Daughter" and something called "Concerto".
