Russia mourns ballet legend Plisetskaya
Russia on Sunday mourned the death of Maya Plisetskaya, one of the greatest ballerinas of the 20th century who dazzled the world with her sensual performances and rare beauty. Plisetskaya, whose free-wheeling spirit defied the limits of Soviet-era art, died Saturday of a heart attack in Munich at the age of 89. Despite her advanced years, the Russian ballet icon had brimmed with energy and her death plunged the Bolshoi Theatre, where she had planned to celebrate her 90th birthday in November, into shock. "Plisetskaya is forever," said the Bolshoi where Plisetskaya danced well into her 60s.
