For the first time since 1961, Osipenko visited the West with the Kirov when it toured Italy in the summer of 1966. Together with colleagues Makarova and Kurgapkina she ventured out freely around Venice, but was not allowed to continue on with the company when it began a London season later that summer. While she was in Italy, Nureyev asked her to defect to the West and dance with him, but that was impossible for her as she would not leave her son in Leningrad.

Keywords:   Osipenko, Nureyev, Makarova, Kurgapkina, defect
