This chapter begins with a description of Osipenko rehearsing the classic ballet La Bayadère while she was working in Hartford in the 1998. That leads back into her decades of experience with the ballet, dating to her student days, when she watched Vaganova rehearse the ballet with Olga Moiseyeva. Within the Kirov, Osipenko established herself in the late 1950s as an artistic iconoclast. “You will do it your own way,” set-and-costume designer Simon Virsiladze told her. She married Anatoly Nisnevich, a young dancer in the company.
