Kirov Ballet

Ninel Yastrebova as the Autumn Fairy in 'Cinderella' - 1940's. Before the version of Konstantin Sergeyev to Prokofievs music the Kirov ballet (in its former Imperial life as the Mariinsky) had an important and lavish production of Cinderella, produced by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov in 1893. The long-forgotten ballet was the first in which Prima Ballerina Assoluta Pierina Legnani, in the title-role, turned 32 fouette-turns. Small survivor of this production is a polka variation, now used for Medora in 'Le Corsaire.'
