    (November 20, 1925-May 2, 2015)
    Prima ballerina assoluta of the Bolshoi Ballet (1960-1990)
    She had a distracting mole above her lip.
    Most of her ballets were choreographed by her husband, Rodion Shchedrin.
    Shchedrin was 7 years her junior.
    She continued to perform as a soloist until she was 65 (A bit old to still be in a tutu)?
    She is acclaimed as the greatest ballerina of the modern era.
    Her fluidity, charisma, and interpretive skill were her trademarks.
    In 1938, her father was killed in the Stalinist purges and her mother was banished to Kazakhstan due to their Jewish heritage.
    She faced anti-Semitism at the Bolshoi and fought for recognition within the ballet company.
