Inspired by the swans which she saw in city parks and by the poem of Tennyson The Dying Swan, Anna Pavlova works with the choreographer Michel Fokine to create in 1905 the famous maintaining solo ballet associated with the piece of Saint-Saëns. According to the tradition, the swan in the dance of Pavlova is seriously injured and is dying. However, Maïa Plissetskaïa reinterprets this dance by playing an old swan resisting stubbornly to the effects of the age (she interpreted the swan in the official reception of her 70 years).
