At the Kirov in 1957, Osipenko created a leading role in The Stone Flower, a new ballet by young choreographer Yuri Grigorovich to Prokofiev’s’ final ballet score. It seemed radically new and different to the Soviet balletgoing public. Osipenko appeared on stage in a unitard rather than a tutu or skirt. She was coached in this production by ex-Kirov ballerina Tatiana Vecheslova, an independent intellectual.
