#TBT Video: Maya Plisetskaya's "Dying Swan"

November 28, 2001

The news coming out of the Bolshoi these days is dismal. But let’s not forget the exceptional artists who transcend the ugly company politics. In that spirit, here’s one of the company’s greatest ballerinas, Maya Plisetskaya, dancing The Dying Swan in 1986—at the tender age of 61. She’s truly incredible. Happy #ThrowbackThursday, everyone.
