"We shall see Pavlova doing the death of the Swan"

Anna Pavlova is renowned for her numerous performances of a solo ballet called 'The Dying Swan' (the title of a poem by Tennyson) which became her signature piece.

It was choreographed by Mikhail Fokine in 1905 and set to the music of Saint-Saëns' cello solo Le Cygne from Le Carnaval des Animaux.
