Every time i hear one of this icons is gone, i can't help but remember the following quote-(don't remember the author)
There's not much for me to say other than she will be missed. I enjoyed her biography and her role in the Ballet Russes documentary. She is the subject of some of my favorite photos in Haskell's Ballet Panorama. Baronova obituary
[size=3]"somewhere, beyond the blue, i'm willing to bet she's enchanting the angels"[/size]
RIP, Mme. Baronova.

I met this delightful lady in St. Petersburg, Russia, while she attended a seminar on the Ballet Russe at the Hermitage Theater, related to the reconstruction of Nijinska's Les Noces by the Maly troupe. I'll never forget her physical beauty -- still striking in her 80s -- lively personality and wit...especially when gently criticizing the Russians' not-too-great attempt to recreate Fokine's 'Petrouchka.' Her mind was sharp as a tack, saying, "No - that's the wrong color dress on the little girl!" or..."That step should be done on the opposite leg!" It's an experience that will stay with me forever.

St. Paul's -- the "Actors' Church" -- is a wonderfully approprtiate location for this event. North Americans may not be familiar with this church and its amazing mission, one tht goes back to the 17th century. Here is their website. If you scroll down to March 13, you will find the Baronova memorial service.
