An exceptional gala, the aim of which is to keep alive the memory of the great Maya Plisetskaya, “Prima Ballerina assoluta”, who died in May 2015 after a fabulous and exemplary career lasting 50 years.
In 2016, the first homage was paid to her with the creation of the Maya Prize, awarded in Cannes.

This year, the homage to Maya Plisetskaya will take the form of an evening that brings together some of the greatest dancers on the international stage who today continue the spirit of this great lady of dance, blending the most remarkable of technique with the most dramatic of expression. The most famous theatres will be represented, such as the Mariinsky Theatre in Saint Petersburg, the Bolshoi Ballet, the Vienna State Ballet, the Berlin Opera, etc.
In total, some fifteen or so stars from across the globe will present a programme comprising the great moments from the repertoire – Don Quixote, Diana and Acteon, Notre-Dame de Paris, etc.- and also more specifically-Russian ballets.

A dance floor par excellence, with its international school created by Rosella Hightower and its Dance Festival, the town of Cannes is reconfirming its commitment to this major art by placing the “Viva Maya” gala in the heart of its summer season, allowing dance to shine on the famous La Croisette once more!
