In this chapter, Maya Plisetskaya recounts her mother's release from Butyrki Prison in Chimkent in April 1941 and her return to Moscow with Maya's little brother. Meanwhile, Maya was preparing for her next performance as her mother began asking her about her ballet studies. The school was preparing for its graduation concert, which would be accompanied by the Bolshoi orchestra and held on the stage of its second theater, on June 21, 1941. Maya danced Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's Impromptu in Leonid Veniaminovich Yakobson's staging to a rousing applause.
