on 23 Ιαν 2011

Statue of Anna Pavlova on the dome of the Victoria Palace Theatre in London who made her London debut there. The original statue was made in 1911, a year after the theatre had been rebuilt by Frank Matcham for the impressario Alfred Butt. Unfortunately the great prima ballerina was extremely superstitious and refused to look at it. The original statue was removed in 1939 for safe keeping during the Blitz, but unfortunately disappeared. it was replaced by a replica in 2006.
