this is swan lake??

I ran across the scene in Swan Lake where Odette is supposed to be reluctant and longing at the same time and I never watch Swan Lake because I don't like it. But for some reason I watched the two minute clip and I couldn't believe how good it was. The dancer's arms are SO LONG that she really conveys the idea of a swan, you know? I was very surprised. Until I looked at the notes and saw who it was. Marie Claude Pietragalla, 1992, Paris Opera Ballet.
