Thank you. I had never seen this one before. Very enjoyable.
This is just wonderful!
The second part of the clip in contained on the VAI bio DVD of Plisetskaya but I've not seen the first part before.
I remember as a very young ballet fan seeing photos of Plisetskaya and being just swept away by them. The first time I actually saw her I took an overnight bus from NYC up to Montreal where the Bolshoi touring group was performing with Plisetskaya as the star. I saw her do Carmen and then immediately got back on the overnight bus to NYC. But I was very young and sturdy and it was a thrilling experience.
LAter I did see her a few more times in NYC when Cold War tensions eased a bit.
Whenever I see clips of her I marvel at the amount of magnetism she possessed and also at the level of energy she performed at. She was an amazing performer. I see clips of her dancing and it brings back the experience. She was a marvel.
