Alla Osipenko

Osipenko again danced in London with the Kirov during a six-week season in the summer of 1970. Young Mikhail Baryshnikov was considered a defection risk after his sensational success in London, but at the end of the season, it was their Kirov colleague Makarova who defected. Each defection brought pushback by the authorities. Osipenko awaited a new round of reprisals, and they manifested as the Kirov continued its tour to Eastern Europe.
