Odessa Opera House will celebrate the 90th anniversary of Maya Plisetskaya.

The concert “The Undying Swan” devoted to the 90th anniversary of a brilliant ballerina Maya Plisetskaya will be held on November, 20.

The concert programme includes the excerpts from the ballet “Don Quixote” and “Swan Lake”, the choreographic miniature “The Dying Swan” from a musical suite  «Le carnaval des animaux» by Camille Saint-Saens, the premiere of the ballet “Isadora” by Maurice Bejart. This ballet was staged for Maya Plisetskaya.

The part of Maya Plisetskaya – Isadora Duncan – is performed by People’s Artist of Ukraine Elena Kamenskikh-Baranovskaya.

 
 

"Carmen Suite" is a finale of the concert. This one-act ballet unites the novel by Merimee and music by Bizet and was created especially for great ballerina Maya Plisetskaya.
