Makarova in 'Le Lac des Cygnes' at Les Nuits du Louvre

In July 1973, Makarova and Nureyev gave a series of performances of 'Le Lac des Cygnes' in the Court Carre at Le Louvre in Paris. Things went wrong, and, at one point, I remember Nureyev yelling at the dancers from the 'wings' of this essentially outdoor event. Curiously, the most memorable thing for me was this photograph of Makarova as Odette in Act 2.
