Alla Osipenko

Joel Lobenthal

Oxford University Press

The Maly theater in Leninigrad was the city’s second ballet company, directed by Osipenko’s ex-Kirov colleague Igor Belsky. It was allowed by the authorities a bit more leeway to experiment. It was here that Osipenko created the role of Cleopatra in a stark new ballet choreographed by Igor Tchernichov, also a former colleague of hers at the Kirov.
