Today's doodle on Google commemorates the 170th birthday of Tschaikovsky with a scene from Swan Lake, coordinated with San Francisco Ballet. Pretty cool ballet shout-out.

Sorry to be mired in the 20th century, but what's a 'doodle on Google'? (I do know what Google is... :wink: )

It will only stay up a day, but here's a link to the San Francisco Ballet blog site:

[Merged from duplicate topic]

Just a reminder that today is Tchaikovsky's 170th birthday! Google even has a "Swan Lake" tribute on their home page.
