~ performed by Galina Ulanova (Odette), Konstantin Sergeyev (Prince Siegfried), Natalia Dudinskaya (Odile, the Black Swan).
"She is the genius of Russian ballet, its elusive soul, its inspired poetry. Ulanova imparts to her interpretation of classical roles a depth of expression unheard of in twentieth century ballet." ~ Sergey Prokofiev on Galina Ulanova
"Ulanova has created her own style, has schooled us to it. She represents an epoch, a time. She has her own hallmark. Like Mozart, Beethoven and Prokofiev she has had an impact, she has reflected her age." ~ Maya Plisetskaya
