For her contemporaries, the great ballerina was a global phenomenon. Round-the-world tours, the best theaters, non-stop work, forced emigration, homesickness, non-compliance with standards, new standards, a difficult female fate - all this is about Anna Pavlova. Flowers, perfumes, chocolates, desserts are named after her. This phenomenon will be called "Pavlovomania". Victor Dandre is always and everywhere with her. It is his memories that will take the audience to the "Great World of Anna Pavlova's Ballet".

The program is accompanied by a display of rare photographs and newsreels depicting the prima on stage, in the dressing room and in everyday life.

The uniqueness of the project lies in the fact that, according to the surviving photographic and film documents, as well as the diaries of the ballerina, author's performances staged for her by Alexander Gorsky, Mikhail Fokin and Anna Pavlova herself were recreated especially for him.

Many of the numbers, once created by Pavlova herself or specially for her, over the years were undeservedly forgotten and, thanks to this project, found a new life and returned to the stage again.
