January 2, 2022

Vladimir Putin congratulated choreographer and National Artist of the USSR Yury Grigorovich on his 95th birthday.

The message reads, in part:

“An outstanding dancer and choreographer, a true patriarch of the Russian school of classical ballet, you are rightly enjoying a high and well-deserved recognition both in our country and abroad. The famous shows you directed throughout your fruitful career are the highlights of repertoires of the biggest Russian and foreign theatres while your disciples preserve and continue the creative heritage of their teacher.”
