In this chapter, Maya Plisetskaya reflects on her performances in Don Quixote and Khovanshchina. She also recalls the time she asked for a pay raise as a ballerina for the Bolshoi Theater but her request was denied. This caused her to focus on her rehearsal as Kitri in Don Quixote under Elena Ilyushchenko as coach. One of the spectators during her performance was Rudolf Nureyev. Maya then turned to Khovanshchina, an opera by Nikolai Semyonovich Golovanov, who was once the principal conductor at the Bolshoi Theater. The dances in Khovanshchina were choreographed by Sergei Gavrilovich Koren.
