Ballerina Anna Pavlova (Russian, 1881-1931) in her legendary Dying Swan costume.
Pavlova is perhaps most renowned for creating the role of The Dying Swan, a solo choreographed for her by Michel Fokine. The ballet, created in 1905, is danced to Le cygne from The Carnival of the Animals by Camille Saint-Saëns. On her death bed, she made the request: “Prepare my swan costume.” The next evening when the company performed and it came time for The Dying Swan, the curtain opened on an empty stage.
