Russian ballet - a universally accepted cultural term denoting the indisputable authority of Russian choreographers, composers and ballet dancers. Russian ballet appeared in the latter half of the XVIIth century and by the beginning of the XXth century it had taken the leading position in choreography. Russian ballet first won international acclaim thanks to the Ballets Russes seasons, organised in Paris and London in 1907-1914 by Sergei Diaghilev, and the legendary Anna Pavlova. Later on Russian ballet stars such as Galina Ulanova, Maya Plisetskaya, Yekaterina Maximova and Vladimir Vasilyev contributed to its glory. The series includes 20 coins made of precious metals. Coins of the same denomination, of proof and uncirculated quality, have the same design.
