Gala Ballet concert in Honor of 90th Anniversary of Maya Pliseyskaya will take place on 20 and 21 November 2015 on the Main Stage.

Whatever she thought up, however many remarkable artists she managed to gather round her, the main treat of every Maya Plisetskaya Gala Evening was always Maya Plisetskaya herself in person. Her look, walk, dance, hint at dancing, the way she took a curtain call, the light flowing from her eyes, her formidable energy fueled by the rapturous reception she aroused in the auditorium – this was what was important and riveted the audience’s attention…
