    She rose into prominence at the times coined the reckless 90's. Capturing imagination of the retiring class of intelligentsia and in equal measure that of the younger generation, Ulyana had a stabilizing effect which made Russians believe that there was something, if not eternal, then long lasting and important. That something was certainly classical ballet, Mariinsky, Bolshoi and Perm theatres and their primas whose skill and beauty had been chiseled to the spoiled perfection by military-like training in the cloister-like environment of the Vaganova Academy.

    Ulyana's physical attributes were something of an oddity reminiscent of Natalia Bessmertnova, but even of more extreme esthetics – impossibly slim torso, impossibly long legs and even longer arms and fingers. This image carries unmistakable trace of decadence style, which goes back to Olga Spessivtseva, the style that never completely left Kirov-Mariinsky. But in case of Lopatkina, tragic undertext characteristic of the aforementioned artistic trend, gave way to budding optimism which takes root in her radiant beauty, both inner and outer.

    Striking in the works of Balachine, first and foremost Lopatkina remained an Imperial ballerina who danced Petipa's roles as if they were created for her and her alone. I was fortunate to have seen Lopatkina in Petipa's great ballets – La Bayadere, Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty (Lilac Fairy). Hers remain the most memorable.
