In this chapter, Maya Plisetskaya recounts her graduation from the ballet school in 1943, her admission into the Bolshoi Theater, her performances there, and her first award. Maya lived in a room of a communal apartment, located in a building owned by the Bolshoi Theater at No. 8 Shchepkinsky Passage. She lived in this apartment until 1955, when she transfered to No. 24, conductor Yuri Fyodorovich Fayer's two-room apartment, on the same staircase landing. The Bolshoi Theater was one of three theaters that comprised Theater Square in the heart of Moscow, the other two being the Maly Theater and the Central Children's Theater.
