Maya Plisetskaya Square Opened in Moscow

A square in Moscow has been named after the great ballerina Maya Plisetskaya, who would have turned 90 this Friday.


      A memorial bronze plate Maya Plisetskaya Square has been set up in the Bolshaya Dmitrovka Street between House 12/1 and House 16, on a wall with graffiti depicting one of the most renowned Russian ballerinas.


      "It is very fortunate that we managed to find a place for commemorating her memory. She saw this place, and like the graffiti. Bolshaya Dmitrovka is a very theatrical place that Muscovites like a lot. I assume that the appearance of Maya Plisetskaya Square will give a new impetus to cultural life in the city", - the Deputy Prime Minister of the Government of the Russian Federation Olga Golodets said at the opening ceremony.


      The ballerina's widower, composer Rodion Shchedrin noted that today Maya has stepped into the future. "Maya was born in Moscow, studied in Moscow, and danced here for nearly 50 years. It is good that Moscow remembers her.
