The premiere of the ballet The Legend of Love to music by Arif Melikov with choreography by Yuri Grigorovich took place at the Kirov Theatre on 23 March 1961. Half a century has passed and all these years The Legend has retained a prominent position in the repertoire. Several generations of performers have come and gone, and for most dancers and balletomanes today The Legend remains just as much an integral part of the classical legacy as Swan Lake, The Nutcracker and Raymonda... And there is no-one in the theatre who would deny their love when asked about The Legend of Love!
