“Prominent Russian ballerina Maya Plisetskaya is turning 85. Jubilee celebrations honoring the great dancer will be held both in Paris and Moscow in December.
One may think it was a miracle but Maya Plisetskaya was actively performing on the stage until her 70th birthday, the age when most prima ballerinas would have long retired. She even danced Maurice Bejart’s “Ave Maya” as part of her own 80th birthday celebrations, becoming the first ever example of phenomenal creative longevity.” The Voice of Russia
