Struggle for Ulanova Heritage Continues - 1 October, 2002 - News

A distant relative of the Bolshoi Theatre prima Galina Ulanova (a daughter of Ulanova’s cousin) keeps on striving for the great ballerina’s heritage. She is going to appeal against the court decision that didn’t recognize her as a relative of Ulanova.

The struggle has continued for a long time already. The ballerina died on March 21, 1988. At the same time, the daughter of Ulanova’s cousin, Tamara Kadaria, who is currently living in the Tver region of Russia, appealed to the Moscow court to recognize her as the only heiress to Ulanova. When the claim was turned down, the woman decided to appeal against the court decision.

It is no wonder that the heiress is so persistent, as the estate is impressive enough. It is a luxurious four-room apartment on the Kotelnicheskaya embankment in Moscow, furnished in the style of the early 19th century; about one hundred pieces of antique jewelry; over 60 awards given to the great dancer; and unique archival letters from poet Boris Pasternak, actor Yury Zavadsky, composer Dmitry Shostakovich, famous physicist Sergey Vavilov and others. It is a surprise to come across some precious things in Ulanova’s apartment, such a cigarette-case that once belonged to the famous Russian singer Fyodor Shalyapin. Ulanova’s estate isn’t only of great commercial value, but also of historical value, which is a strong motive for the heiress not to give up the struggle. The woman is not the only one who claims to the estate: Russia’s Ministry of Culture and the Bolshoi Theatre would like to turn the ballerina’s estate into museum expositions. The fiscal authorities threaten to put up Ulanova’s things for sale if no heirs appear. As a result, Tamara Kadaria received nothing, and Ulanova’s apartment has been turned into a branch of the museum of the Bakhrushin Theatre.

However, the heiress won’t give up and is going to appeal against the court decision in a higher court.
