Plisetskaya dances The Dying Swan and the Bolero

You may need to press the play arrow to get these to start.  A minor inconvenience given what you’re about to see and hear.

No comment possible or required.  Maya Plisetskaya was the most beautiful woman I ever saw and the most graceful.  This is from a YouTube posting. Saint-Saens’ music was never better served.  Prepare to be hypnotized.

And there is this–a very unclassical dance to Ravel’s Bolero.  Plisetskaya was not only graceful, she was torrid.  I don’t know why this is in two parts, but it’s worth the switch in mid-dance.
