The corner of Russian ballet-dancer Anna Pavlova will be open in the famous library of Alexandria (Egypt) on June 27. According to director of the Russian cultural center in Alexandria Gennady Goryachkin, the memorial department will contain bills, photographs of Anna Pavlova's performances in Cairo and Alexandria (she toured Egypt in 1910, 1923 and 1928), press-clippings and a bronze figurine of the ballet dancer. Anna Pavlova's art boosted the creation of the Egyptian ballet school with the assistance of Soviet and Russian choreographers. The great Russian ballet-dancer Anna Pavlova was born in St. Petersburg in 1881. In 1891 she entered the ballet department of the St. Petersburg theater school. In 1899 she was admitted to the celebrated Mariinsky Theater. In 1906 she became its prima. In 1907 she performed The Dying Swan (composer Camille Saint-Saens), a solo choreographed by Mikhail Fokin. This dance made her famous. From 1908 she toured abroad and participated in the famous Russian Seasons in Paris. In 1910 Anna Pavlova formed her own company and they toured all over the world. She visited Russia for the last time in 1914. The great ballet dancer loved London. She danced in the Royal Theater and was cordially received at court. She died on January 23, 1931 at the age of 50 in the Hague and was buried in London.
