The legendary Russian ballerina Maya Plisetskaya has died (2 May) aged 89. She was an extraordinary dancer, dancing an exquisite 'Dying Swan' when she was 61 years old (in the video below) .

She was by all accounts a lovely person as well as a fabulous dancer.  This photo of her was taken a few weeks ago and shared by the Australian conductor Daniel Smith who is making a name for himself after winning several international conducting competitions.
