prima ballerina

Pierina Legnani (below left) was the first ballerina ever to be titled as Prima ballerina assoluta — with the Prima ballerina Olga Preobrajenskaya (right). They are costumed for the roles of Medora and Gulnare in the scene Le jardin animé from Marius Petipa’s final revival of Le Corsaire for the Imperial Ballet. – St. Petersburg, 1899.

I knew my husband (then boyfriend) was a keeper when while he was visiting me in Moscow, went willingly to the ballet with me at the beautiful Bolshoi Theatre ♥
