On 1931, on tour for her dance show in The Hague, Anna Pavlova had pneumonia and required an operation. And also she was told she would never be able to dance again if she had the operation.
She refused to have it and said "If I can't dance then I'd rather be dead."
She died of pleurisy January January 23, 1931.
On the day she was died to have next performed, the show went on as scheduled, with a single spotlight circling an empty stage where she would have been.
The Dying Swan died.
