I’m posting a few historic photos related to LE CORSAIRE Pas De Deux, Etc.:
*One shows Zubkovsky as the “Slave” perhaps is 1939, with credit for the duet to Chekrygin
*another shows Chabukiani in his “slave-chains” in a costume that no doubt was familiar to Nureyev; the photocard is dated 1939 and gives "Slave" as the role-name.
*finally a really curious photo of whoknows what production in an undated picture of an unidentified dancer in an equally unidentified role. All I know for certain is that it shows some moment from KORSAR – the Russian name for the ballet. (I suspect this is Conrad, and not the “Slave” but his heeled shoes might indicate that IF there was “classical” duet in whatever place/production depicted, this dancer would NOT have been the one doing the classical dancing.)
