A Tribute to Maya Plisetskaya


The great dancer – one of the greatest ever – died a week ago. Here’s a touching tribute that captures the essence of the artist and humanitarian: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2015/05/06/russia-s-greatest-ballerina-remembered-in-the-war-zone.html (wherein is embedded early film of her most famous interpretation).

You may see another, later film of “The Dying Swan” here (in which the music from Carmen that begins the excerpt was arranged by her husband, Rodion Shchedrin).
