Here’s the esteemed Mrs. George Balanchine #2, also known as the Continental beauty Vera Zorina — luscious, lovely, and delectable. In this precious video, Zorina dances the Princess Zenobia pas de deux made by Balanchine for the Richard Rodgers musical “On Your Toes” (1936).
Oh my god, I love when toward the end she balances her torso across his calf muscle! How does Balanchine get her there? And once he gets her there, how on earth does he gets her out?!
Shades of “The Prodigal Son” peek through … enjoy!
merci, marcus galante, pour le video.
