Famous Russian Choreographer celebrated his 67th Birthday
Famous Russian choreographer Mikhail Baryshnikov used to dance in Leningrad Opera and Ballet Theatre from 1967 to 1974. However he decided to quit due to the fact that he was not satisfied with repertoire of the Theatre.

In 1974 he was on tour together with troupe of Bolshoi Theatre in Canada. There he got an offer from his close friend and colleague Alexander Mints. He decided to join American Ballet Theatre troupe and never came back to Russia from that time.

Mikhail Baryshnikov has also become rather successful actor. He took part in such popular shows as “Sex in the City” and many other American programs. At the same time he also took part in dramatic play which is called “Metamorphose” in 1989. It took place on Broadway. Now he is professional photographer and composer.

He lives and works in the United States. At the same time he is creative director of his own Art Center. He also runs restaurant business and has establishment which is called “Russian Samovar” in New-York.

We would like to congratulate Mikhail Baryshnikov with his 67th birthday and wish him all the best!
