Bolshoi ballerina Raisa Struchkova charming clip

Recommended Posts

As a YT poster puts it...:

"Who the hell dances like that nowadays?

That is a Kitri variation the way it's supposed to be! " :wink:


I saw Struchkova dance this pas de deux the length and breadth of England in 1968 partnered by the excellent Vilen Galstian.

Struchkhova was very much loved in England and for me, there have been very few dancers I have seen that have expressed such a joy for dancing as Struchkhova or be so movingly tender whether in a soviet 'nightie' number with her husband Alexander Lapauri, or as a remarkable Juliet with the magnificent Maris Liepa at Covent Garden in 1963.
