In the spring, you want to quickly throw off your heavy winter clothes and get out of wardrobes and shoe cabinets, if not pointe shoes, then at least light leather ballet flats that do not go out of fashion every season. As well as chiffon dresses and fluffy tutu skirts made of organza and tulle mesh. And walk, no, even dance along the Moscow streets, inhaling the aromas of blossoming lilacs.

But it looks like winter this year does not want to retreat. And so I had to walk through frosty Moscow, looking at airy tutus and pointe shoes in old porcelain at the Flea Market.

A large collection of porcelain figurines of famous ballerinas and dancers - Maya Plisetskaya, Galina Ulanova, Rudolf Nureyev, Tatyana Krasavina, Mikhail Fokin and many other iconic figures of the most important of the arts - literally danced, spun in a fouette before my eyes. The truth behind the glass. But it is very tempting. So that I even remembered the premiere of "Nureyev" at the Bolshoi Theater and wanted to see the performance as soon as possible. However, until June, when the performance will be shown again, it is still far away and rather cold. It remains to contemplate how, behind glass in a porcelain dress, "she is brilliant, semi-airy, obedient to the magic bow, surrounded by a crowd of nymphs, Istomina is standing" …

“We have put together an exposition that includes the costumes of the Bolshoi Theater, old photographs of actresses of the imperial theaters, books about ballet, programs and posters, paintings and graphics of the 19th-20th centuries,” the exhibition director Marina Smirnova tells us about the special project. The project is really great. An hour before the official opening, I ran all the costumes by myself, so I recommend you not to miss Flea's special projects.

In general, the March exhibition featured over 150 exhibits with antiques from France, Holland, England, Germany, Canada, Belgium and other countries. And it was necessary to try to survive the aesthetic and cultural delight and dwell on things that I had long wanted to buy for home decor: antique and vintage lamps, monumental lamps of the 20th century, worthy samples of furniture and interior items, or unique dolls, which are sometimes more than a hundred years old. …

The flea is also pleasant because the most wonderful meetings with old friends and new acquaintances can happen on it. For example, we talked there with the singer Yulia Artyomova, who is trying on a yellow velvet robe, at one of the stands. Yellow suits her. I hope to see the actress in this robe in one of the musical performances.
