Illegal use of the name of Maya Plisetskaya
The name of Maya Plisetskaya has been used illegally again and again by the Imperial Russian Ballet under the direction of Gediminas Taranda.
A few years ago, Maya Plisetskaya withdrew her permission previously granted to have her name used by the aforementioned ballet group. Nevertheless, the Imperial Russian Ballet still uses her name to promote their performances - as happened recently in Cyprus where the performance posters even announced Maya Plisetskaya's appearance in a dance role. Such deliberately false announcements are a deception of the audience. Another performance with her alleged appearance shall take place in Lisbon in October. The Foundation has now taken legal action to put an end to the further misuse of Maya Plisetskaya's name.
