Ballerina with Alzheimer's hears swan lake, begins to dance 3,776,036 views •9 Nov 2020

"Grab a tissue, brace yourself for an extreme case of goosebumps and enjoy what might be the most beautiful video of the year.

It shows Marta C Gonzalez, a former prima ballerina who danced with the New York Ballet in the 1960s, sitting in her wheelchair at a nursing home in Valencia and listening to the finale of Swan Lake through headphones. As she does so, she begins to go gracefully through the choreography she learnt decades ago.

And that’s not even the most remarkable part. Ms Gonzalez, who sadly died last year, was suffering from Alzheimer’s disease at the time.
While the video is from 2019, it’s only just been released by Asociación Música para Despertar, a Spanish charity that provides therapy for dementia patients by using important music from their lives. It’s now gone viral, and there can’t be a dry eye on the planet.

‘The power of music is immeasurable,’ the charity said. ‘May she rest in peace.’"


God bless her

Tchaikovsky Swan Lake – Dance of the cygnets (The Royal Ballet)

Meaghan Grace Hinkis, Isabella Gasparini, Romany Pajdak and Elizabeth Harrod dance as cygnets in Liam Scarlett's production of Swan Lake which will be broadcast on Christmas Day 2018 on BBC Four. Swan Lake was Tchaikovsky’s first score for ballet. Given its status today as arguably the best loved and most admired of all classical ballets, it is perhaps surprising that at its premiere in 1877 Swan Lake was poorly received. It is thanks to the 1895 production by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov that Swan Lake has become part of not only ballet consciousness but also wider popular culture. That success is secured not only by the sublime, symphonic sweep of Tchaikovsky’s score, but also by the striking choreographic contrasts between Petipa’s royal palace scenes and the lyric lakeside scenes created by Ivanov.

Swan Lake has had a special role in the repertory of The Royal Ballet since 1934. Since then there has been a succession of productions, the most recent of which was a new production with additional choreography by Artist in Residence Liam Scarlett. Scarlett, while remaining faithful to the Petipa-Ivanov text, brought fresh eyes to the staging of this classic ballet, in collaboration with his long-term designer John Macfarlane.
