Svetlana Zakharova, Bolshoi Ballet, Strenght and flexibility build up by hour and hours of work, a strong will and the power to resist. Brava! I really admire her, not only for her physical abillities, but also for her mental strenght.

bohemea:    Maya Plisetskaya as The Dying Swan  I love Plisetskaya’s interpretation of The Dying Swan. Even though I don’t think anyone connects to the piece’s tragic beauty the way Pavlova does, Maya’s performance is so fluid & transcendent. My favourite performance is of Maya performing The Dying Swan at age 61 in 1986.

She is one of only 11 dancers to ever earn the rare honored titled "Prima Ballerina Assoluta.
