Divorcing Voropyaev, Osipenko conducted an affair with theater director Georgi Ufeet. Dancing on the Kirov stage was now often a torturous experience for her, given her infrequent scheduling and resulting nerves, as well as the Kirov administration’s disparagement. Her coach’s insistence that she return to the demanding role of Gamzatti in La Bayadère was an ordeal, but after seeing this performance in Leningrad, critic Clive Barnes, writing for London’s monthly Dance and Dancers, called her “now probably the grandest of the Kirov ballerinas.”
