People have told me that Nureyev and Yuri Soloviev were among the greatest of all time! Any opinions?

After seeing him in Emeralds on the POB Jewels video, I have to agree.

Bluebird was one of the roles he danced in Moscow in 1981 that led to his medal win.
In 1981, he won the silver medal in the Senior Men's category at the 4th International Ballet Competition in Moscow. In 1979, Pugh danced so brilliantly as the Bluebird in THE SLEEPING BEAUTY at the New York State Theatre that Rudolf Nureyev presented him with his bouquet during the curtain calls.
Here's the link to his bio on Kevin's "DanceTeq" site:

I would have loved Panov if his variation would have been included in the Kirov film of the 60s; why it wasn't included in the film ?
I would say it was one more victim of the massive cuts made for the film.
Using a hatchet, the filmers got the running length of the film down to 90 minutes. So much of the ballet didn't make it to film. Possibly Act 3 suffered the most.

if it proves more frustrating than worthwhile this way, i can take it down; it's as much of the cover of a Sept. 3, 1966 issue of THE ILLUSTRATED LONDON NEWS as could fit my scanner.
the photo is duly identified as: Alla Sizova and Yuri Soloviev in the BLUEBIRD PAS DE DEUX from THE SLEEPING BEAUTY.
the related article in the issue is entitled "The Kirov Ballet returns to Covent Garden" and the 2-page spread announces that "The Leningrad State Kirov Ballet begin thier second visit to England on September 5. The will be giving 28 perfomances, mainly of classical ballets."
the smaller photos for the spread are all black and white.

I'd love to see what Kajiya and Lane do as Florine -- two sure bets (I hope) .
