Liberalization of culture and politics during the Krushchev “thaw” meant a certain relaxation of potential ballet subjects and the possibility of rehabilitation for creative figures who had been marginalized. Accusations of eroticism did not prevent Jacobson’s Rodin trio from reaching the Kirov stage in 1959, three duets inspired by Rodin sculpture. Now at the height of her renown as an avatar of the new Soviet ballet, Osipenko was appointed a delegate to the Central Committee of the Komsomol, the Communist Party youth organization.
