    I don'r pretend to be a ballet critic or connoisseur, but this to me is just a miracle of movement. Such incredible grace and strength, although disguised under taffeta and crinoline.

    I am a big, ungainly guy, 6 feet 1 inch tall with size 14 shoes (yes, they look a bit like skis, but I would look funny with little tiny feet, now, wouldn't I?), 230 pounds, but at nearly age 70 I can still go out and run a few miles ... slowly. I am certainly built all wrong to be a fast runner! And I've never been much of a dancer, although in my younger and thinner days I got a couple of compliments from the girls I danced with. One of them has stayed with me all these years, so she is prejudiced and I don't much believe her. But I appreciate her support!

    Anyway. This lady is wonderful! Thanks for posting this.

    Kind regards,

    George

    The finest live ballet performance I've ever seen was when the Bolshoi brought Osipova and Ivan Vasiliev to London to dance Don Quixote. Osipova and Vasiliev were an item in those days and their personal chemistry was wonderful to behold. Don Quixote provided them with iconic signature roles. A performance was broadcast to cinemas from the Bolshoi and it is an utter disgrace that it has never been released on Blu-ray/DVD.

    Osipova is an amazing dancer. I think she has helium or so in her tutu to fly like this through the air :-) I never had the chance to see her live though. I hope I will have the chance one day!
