I just watched this one - you are truly amazing! It's interesting, though, how Tatiana took to nursing like a duck to water, while Olga just wasn't feeling it.

Thank you! TN loved  exactitude, loved lists, The Governess!...I actually think she was a very sensitive person, surely that is evident in her face,,, and I believe she  found a type of  comfort in the impersonal medical world. Olga  was all about the personal, that was her approach to life . That   makes being effective in the medical world nearly  imposable....if you can't  shut that down, who would not be upset and crying all the time in such a place ? It's hard now to look into these men's eyes.  What I admire about Olga in this is she recognized the situation and  removed herself from the dressing room. Those engaged to making sure a nervous GD didn't mess up...(and one can see the large group of people in the photos) were needed else where.   lol!  But that didn't stop her from doing what she could   and in a tireless fashion . She played piano for the men , (ALOT)  chess games, lawn crochets , did great deal  of supply work and there are stories of her writing letters home  for men who lost their right arms ... which sadly,  many did. But looking at the photos in the dressing room: TN is engaged and interested , ON looks unhappy...again, anyone would be  if they can't shut down the personal...and not everyone can. The medical profession is a calling .

Bless OTMA, the music is perfect, too.  Round, full, rich, but not too dramatic.

Thank you! It's an older John Barry film score,"  Across the sea of Time"   from which I edited out harps! lol
But there's a quite majesty about it that I liked. The music one of my favortie parts of the video making process.
They often start with the music  =)

Oh Yes, you must start with the music!  Petipa only gave Tchaikovsky a few instructions, then waited for Tchaikovsky's score to be written before Petipa would choreograph a ballet!!

Thank you for that wonderful information!  It doesn't surprise me. Music gives structure and often ideas .

Very nice Annie! I don't believe I've seen a few of those photos before, and I think the music went beautifully with the images.

Thanks EmmyLee. Yes the rare photos were an inspiration to make the video....also someone on a Russian blog said oh they just posed for photos! I wanted to show they did real nursing as well! ...and as I was say, the men wanted those group photos with them ! lol!

Allow me to offer my own compliments for that great vid Annie! Just marvelous, and I've also never heard the Barry score, which is strange for me... but I bet my friend Craig has! He's a BIG fan of the late Mr. Barry!
