Every man in the company, it seemed, wanted to dance with her. There were memorable pairings with Armand and Plotnikov and Yury Yanowsky, yet she never found an ideal long-term partner. It was as if no one could match her in all her incarnations.
Her last performance of this season was with Yanowsky in Helen Pickett's Layli o Majnun, a problematic duet that she made work with typical intelligence and devotion. It's not a fitting way for this prima assoluta to go out. The Ballet should give her a proper farewell — perhaps a pas de deux from Onegin? — at next season's "Night of Stars."
