In this chapter, Maya Plisetskaya describes how she learned to be a member of the Bolshoi Theater. The Adolphe Adam ballet, which ran in Leningrad for a long time, was just premiering on the Moscow stage. Leonid Lavrovsky set Giselle on Galina Sergeyevna Ulanova, against whom Maya was often pitted. Ulanova danced Juliet in the Moscow premiere of Romeo and Juliet. Maya began rehearsing her next ballet, Raymonda.
