NYCB Vol. 7 No. 27 - Swan Lake

“Her Odette manages to be both a ballerina’s holiday and a poetic and appealing work of art. In the quality of her movement she has summoned the softest of lines and the most lyric of phrases. She is beautifully poised, beautifully serene, and she dances like an angel.” —John Martin, New York Times, 1958.

Melissa Hayden and Jacques d'Amboise.
