Although not a varNam in the traditional sense, Smt. Vyjayantimala has choreographed sAdhincenE as a varNam. I believe it is commercially available.

The Viriboni varnam (Bhairavi) was sung by Sowmya in her Mayyal album with lyrics.

You are right to have your doubts. At best, it's connection to kRshNa comes from two phrases- dakshiNa dvAraka sArasudau and rAjagOpAlA. Plus, as a tAna varNam, even when the prabhandam is sung, it offers very little scope for abhinaya, and the words in the pallavi and anupallavi do not offer meaningful splits to insert jatis, IMO.

I was under the impression that Rama Vaidyanathan had danced Viriboni as a dance piece... she inherited it from her guru Saroja Vaidyanathan/Yamini Krishnamurthy (one of the two).

You can fashion Vachamagocharudani Nee Padamulanu (Atana, Mysuru Sadasiva Rao) into a varnam- it is a samkshelpa Bhagavatha krithi. I do not have audio of that, however.

If all else fails, you have the always dependable Innum En Manam (Charukeshi, Lalgudi Jayaraman) to turn on. There is a commercial release - Lalgudi's Pada Varnams - which has a recording.

The jathi segment could be inserted after the second line of the Pallavi (Marulu Konnadira), or after the first line of the Anupallavi (Sarasudau...)
