Alla Sizova, a Legendary Balleria with the Kirov (Maryinsky) Ballet

Alla Sizova, one of the leading ballerinas of the Kirov Ballet during the 1960s and ’70s and an early partner of Rudolf Nureyev, died on Nov. 23 in St. Petersburg. She was 75.

Ms. Sizova’s outsize talent was apparent even before she joined the Kirov (now the Maryinsky) in 1958. When she was still a student at the Vaganova Ballet Academy in Leningrad (as St. Petersburg was then known), her extraordinarily high jump and astounding technical prowess as the Queen of the Dryads in a school performance of “Don Quixote” won raves from the Leningrad critics and a nickname, Flying Sizova.
