Michael Owen Talks to Six of the world's greatest Ballerinas
and asks them to recall their most memorable dance.
(From the British Airways Flight Magazine)
Klimentova remembers her greatest performance as the night she fell
on her bottom. It was in Sydney, Australia, when this Prague-born ballerina
was dancing the roles of Odette and Odile in the English National Ballet's
production of Swan Lake.
It was ENB director Derek Deane's epic staging designed to play in stadiums
and amphitheatres, with a cast of 120 and a corps de ballet of 70 shimmering
swans. It had first been seen in the round at the Royal Albert Hall,
London, and then went on a highly successful world tour that brought
it to Sydney where an audience of 10,000 had packed into a stadium.
