Lynn Seymour & Donald MacLeary publicity photos

Recommended Posts

rehearsal and post-performance photos of Seymour and MacLeary on the May, 1959 occasion documenting Seymour's debut as Odette/Odile in the Royal Ballet's SWAN LAKE.

presumably these wire photos were sent to Canadian newspapers at the time.

I saw Seymour dance O/O at ROH in 1964, I believe it was the first major role she totally relinquished, I wish very much that she had persevered with the classics rather than accepting the title of MacMillan's 'muse'. The rehearsal shot clearly shows her beautiful line, in those days almost on a par with Fonteyn's. Seymour wasn't then considered an outstanding exponent of that role because at that time there were so many of the greats still dancing, but with hindsight she was quite superb and I would swop her intelligence and sensitivity any day for the exaggerated techniques of the contortionists currently aspiring to the role today.
