Alicia Alonso's Giselle, Bolshoi Theater 1957 clip

Recommended Posts

:clapping: Pas Seul starts at 2:11.

From a poster:

"I know how happy and thrilled Alicia was in that Giselle because she told me she received multiple curtain calls after the variation. Many in the ballet world at that time were not acquainted with the Spessivtzeva coda diagonal and the Russians were enthralled and mentioned it afterward to her. Alicia replied, "The diagonal coda belongs in the variation because it's Olga's variation". The Russians have always done the piques around the stage as you know. Only Markova & Alonso did it".
