Happy Birthday to the great Maya Plisetskaya!
Today, on November 20th, Maya Plisetskaya celebrated her 89th birthday. We congratulate the living ballet legend! The movements of her hands are compared to those of a swan; the unique diva destroyed stereotypes of age limit in ballet; the mysterious beauty became the muse of Pierre Cardin.

Video: "The Swan" - Maya Plisetskaya (film-ballet, 1975)
Charles-Camille Saint-Saens, "The Swan". Choreography: Michel Fokine.
