Maya Plisetskaya and Rodion Shchedrin celebrate their golden wedding

On Thursday, 2. October 2008, it is already for the 50th time that Maya Plisetskaya and Rodion Shchedrin have said yes to each other in Moscow.

Only a few other married couples have embodied artistic success over decades, like this perfect couple of Russian theatre and music did. Both set standards in their own art, and there is still no holding for them in their activity and commitment to art and society to the present. To question where do they still take the strength and inspiration for that they call it the deep love and cordial dealings with each other as the decisive source.

In gratitude thinks the world community of their followers on this day of the two and wishes them many more healthy and happy common years as well as - not altruistic - as numerous testimonies of their artistic skill and creativity as possible for themselves.
