Double room with a private bathroom.
Dora Angela Duncan or Isadora (she took this pseudonym herself) was one of the brightest stars of the 20th century. Her sensual performances always caused a thunderous applause. Isadora impressed the audience not only by dancing barefoot in a short tunic, but she also appeared half-naked on the stage; only the fluttering clothes covered her body. It was a shocking and delightful dance that symbolized the emancipation of women and challenged the Puritan America.
The storm of emotions that Duncan’s performances caused did not pass Sergei Yesenin as well. Their passionate romance, though it didn’t last long, has amazed their contemporaries.
Someone said that in Isadora the poet has found a woman as genius as he was. For some friends, it was quite surprising that the couple communicated using just gestures most of the time. But Isadora’s knowledge of Russian was enough to say a word “Angel” when she first saw Yesenin. However, over time they have grown apart; the fact that Yesenin felt like a stranger in America, like a “man of a popular wife” has played its role in that. Eventually in the end he said “Isadora, adieu!”.
Duncan was so shocked after the mysterious death of the poet that she even took a suicide attempt. Isadora has refused a lawful inheritance, saying that Yesenin’s family needed that money more, even though she has been desperate for financial help herself.
Actually, Isadora has lived in poverty since childhood. Partly for that reason, she always indulged herself with precious things and the best hotels when she has become famous. Duncan traveled a lot and she has opened several children’s dance schools with her earnings. Isadora has adopted and educated about forty children, so that they could freely enjoy their favorite thing to do – dancing.
One evening Isadora tied her neck with a long scarf and sat in a cabriolet to go to the concert. Before that, she said: “Farewell, my friends! I’m on my way to the glory! “. The car moved and a scarf got caught in the wheel…dancer’s words has been proved fatal.
In our “Isadora” room you can admire the portrait of the great dancer and imagine her whirling around the place wearing an elegant translucent scarf.
