Svetlana Zakharova as particularly the black swan, although she does a pretty good job at the white swan too. I think she portrays the evil as well as grace in the black swan.
Svetlana Zakharova as Giselle.
Sylvie Guillem as the lead in In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated. This ballet was choreographed for her and she definitely owned that role!!!!! The best dancer in In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated.

Edited by Ms_A_Kitri (234255) on 2011-10-02 09:56:06 I by accident wrote Kitri instead of Swanilda in the caption!
Defiantly Polina Semoinova as Giselle. I like Oksana Skorik and Svetlana Zakharova as odette and odile. I also like Lucia Lacarra and Natalia Osipova as Swanilda. I like Natalia Osipova as kitri. Of course Sylvie Guillem in In the middle somewhat elevated.

PS: The pictures are Osipova as Swanilda and Skorik as odette

Isabel Guerin - Nikiya

www.youtube.com . . . She is SUPERB in this role. Pure, natural, subtle, elegant, right amount of believable emotion...


Silvie Guillem and Cynthia Harvey as Kitri.

Svetlana Zakharova and Karen Kain www.youtube.com . . . as Giselle.

Margot Fonteyn in Swan Lake.

Marsha Rodridguez as Esmeralda.

And whoever danced this role of Myrtha: www.youtube.com . . . really beautiful. Shame of me to say I can't find the name of the ballerina who danced this :/ but she danced so elegantly and did a great job of being ghostly and cold.



There are others but those are the ones that came first to my mind.

That Myrtha is Isabel Seabra. :)

And I definitely have to agree with you on Isabelle Guerin. She's amazing as Nikiya and I can't watch any other without comparing them to her.
