Alla Osipenko

Joel Lobenthal

Oxford University Press

While she was still an undergraduate, Osipenko began to be featured in new works choreographed especially for her. Soviet ballet icon Vhaktung Chabukiani created a trio for fifteen-year-old Osipenko and two other students, and, a year later, rebel choreographer Leonid Jacobson choreographed a new duet for her. She fielded the extensive curriculum of academic and theatrical subjects at the school, and, reading on her own, began to manifest an independent view of Soviet life.
