Maya Plisetskaya

Yale University Press

In this chapter, Maya Plisetskaya describes what she was like at five years old. She describes her physical features and recounts how she would run on tiptoe, making holes in her shoes. She naively loved Delibes's waltz from Coppélia and watched a cadet band played it on Sretensky Boulevard during holidays. She attended kindergarten located in the present Moscow City Council building. She had her first trip to the theater when she was five to watch the play entitled Don't Joke with Love.
