Irina Kolesnikova in Odile variation from Black Swan Pas de deux (by irinakolesnikova)
One of, if not, my favourite Odiles. I am so sad that Irina Kolesnikova doesn’t get the attention she deserves. Her turns are just magic and she has an interesting interpretation (a very Russian and theatrical one) of Odile as a very strong and seductive, yet menacing character contrasting with her weak and innocent Odette.
Jurgita Dronina as Odette-Odile in Swan Lake (Norwegian National Ballet) (by endro93)
I think my heart just stopped. This dancer is amazing. I’ve watched so many dancers dance in Swan Lake and I’ve never felt my heart break so much as in this moment. Her Odile is sultry and swan-like, her intentions hidden behind her charm, but still faintly there. Her Odette is fragile, delicate and beautiful.
I watched this without the music in my dance studies lecture and I was on the verge of tears. I can’t begin to describe how beautiful this interpretation is.
