Here's the NY Times version of the story.<P>Karl Marx is also buried in London. I suspect that no one will be too keen to have him reburied in Moscow!<P> <A HREF="http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/i/AP-Russia-Anna-Pavlova.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/i/AP-Russia-Anna-Pavlova.html</A>

There's been a delay in returning Pavlova's remains to Russia.<BR> <A HREF="http://www.cleveland.com/entertainment/index.ssf?/entertainment/pd/e12anna.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.cleveland.com/entertainment/index<BR>.ssf?/entertainment/pd/e12anna.html</A> <p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited February 28, 2001).]

Reuter's reports that on this date:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>1931 - Anna Pavlova, Russian dancer and one of the most celebrated prima ballerinas of her time, died.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><BR>One can argue about how she would look today - how her technique would seem to our modern eyes, but one cannot argue about her influence on the ballet of her time and subsequently on our time. Her influence went well beyond her own time and space.<P>The few snippets we have of her dancing were filmed (some of them at least) by Charlie Chaplin who was intrigued with the ballet. She captivated the audiences of her time, truly across the world. From the most knowledgeable balletomanes to the most unknowing. <P> An entire generation of illustrious names in the world of dance began their autobiographies with the words: "I first learned about the the ballet from seeing Anna Pavlova dance - my parents took me to see her". Nothing stopped her, she danced wherever people would gather. She danced here in San Diego in a theater that is still operating, The Spreckles, and one of my teachers< Eula Hoff, was on the stage with her and bequeathed to me her precious "Pavlova Programs" signed by the great ballerina. <P>She didn't only dance for crowned heads - she danced for everyone who would come to see her. The night she died she was scheduled to dance "Dying Swan" - her signature piece. The audience sat is hushed tears as the music played to an empty stage. "Dying Swan" was not performed again for many years - no one wanted to step into those slippers. <P>She was a true larger than life figure in the history of the ballet and she died today in 1931. <P><BR>

Will they; won't they? A legal tug of war is now under way for Pavlova's ashes. Is it just me or is this getting rather silly?<P> <A HREF="http://www.vny.com/cf/news/upidetail.cfm?QID=165226" TARGET=_blank>http://www.vny.com/cf/news/upidetail.cfm?QID=165226</A>

From yesterday's Evening Standard:<P><BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>The operators of the London crematorium that has held the ashes of ballerina Anna Pavlova since her death 70 years ago said today that plans to return the remains to Russia had been called off at the behest of Russian authorities. <P>The ashes were to be returned next week.

As far as I have understood, Pavlova's ashes are now to remain in Golder's Green Crematorium, where they have been for all these years, not far from her home, Ivy House, in Hampstead, North London.<P>For any of you planning a trip to London, her home is open as a small museum on Saturday afternoons only, admission free.<P>IVY HOUSE<BR>NORTH END ROAD<BR>LONDON NW11<BR>(nearest tube station: Golders Green)<P>Can anyone help me: I saw her Swan costume, and a plaster cast of her extraordinary foot on pointe in a minor museum in London when I was a young child. Does anybody know which museum it is in, as I can't remember, and nor can my parents. I have been searching for a while, with no luck. Any suggestions will be gratefully received.

I have seen pictures of that cast of her foot, Red Shoes, in fact it is in my huge Pavlova book. It's probably the best book I have ever seen on her life and work. <P>The pattern of her Swan costome was used for Margot Fonteyn's first tutu costume for that ballet. As I remember reading it, the costume maker was already retired, but Fonteyn's mother talked her into making just one more....

Basheva - Would that be the Victor Dandré book? I read that a long time ago. A superb book, and it was full of wonderful pictures of Pavlova, as I recall.
