Ballerina dances

Victorian illustration to download showing a picture of a ballerina dancing on stage. Wearing a full short dress, she pirouettes round her partner. His costume is in the style of an 18th-century soldier. The elaborate stage scenery shows a rocky coast and exotic plants and trees. This is a depiction of the Russian ballerina Zina Richard performing in the ballet ‘La Bresilienne’ at the Royal Italian Opera House (now the Royal Opera House), Covent Garden, in 1858. The theatre had just re-opened after having been re-built after a fire.
