Here is the great Kirov ballerina Irina Kolpakova in 3 rare variations from Raymonda. Impeccable technique and at the correct tempi for a change. I was honored to dance on the same Gala with her and Yuri Soloviev in Berlin. Even though I was a principal dancer with Balanchine's NYC Ballet at the time, I could see the lineage from her training directly to Balanchine.
