After Nureyev’s defection, the Kirov Ballet opened as scheduled at the Royal Opera House in London, but Osipenko found herself largely under quarantine when she was not on stage. However, she enjoyed dancing with the young Yuri Soloviev, one of the Kirov’s most remarkable dancers until his suicide in 1977. Osipenko had by now acquired a unique cachet within the company. She “wasn’t a typically standard type of dancer,” Soloviev’s widow recalled. “She was complex … interesting.” Soloviev was “beside himself with excitement that he was going to dance with her.”
