Today’s post is for those of you adicted to Masterpiece Theater’s miniseries “Mr. Selfridge.” Follow this link to see vintage footage of the great and legendary ballerina Anna Pavlova perform her signature piece “The Dying Swan,” which was choreographed in 1905 by Mikhail Fokine.

Her last words were reported to be “Get my ‘Swan’ costume ready.”
