An Idol Takes a Bow

June 21, 2012

Today’s archive photo is an image of Galina Ulanova from the Bolshoi’s first trip to New York in 1959.

For a little look at Ulanova’s Juliet, see our February 2011 feature here. In it you’ll find a few quotes about her exceptionally special dancing from other performers like this one:  “It is magic. Now we know what we lack. Ulanova’s dance…is so marvelous I can’t find words for it.” —Margot Fonteyn in 1956
