re: Legnani's Odile, the identity of the photo on the Legnani page - middle, right - costumed in dark (red? black?) tutu and tights does not jibe w/the sketch for Odile's costuming just below that photo - it might well be some other role, even though some publications have proposed Odile.

Yeah I noticed that too, so I'm not 100% sure if she is costumed as Odile in that photo. What I do know is that her Odile costume wasn't black; it was royal blue with striking multi-coloured glittered designs and I can say that Odile will not be wearing black in Ratmansky's reconstruction. He's also reconstructing Ivanov's original pas de deux a trois scheme for the lakeside pas d'action.
