Maya Plisetskaya

Yale University Press

In this chapter, Maya Plisetskaya focuses on her experience as a performer under the regime of Nikita Khrushchev, who invited heads of foreign governments at the Bolshoi Theater to watch ballet. In front of them, Maya danced Swan Lake, Fountain of Bakhchisarai, The Stone Flower, and Shurale. The Stone Flower, Sergei Sergeyevich Prokofiev's posthumous work, was produced by Leonid Lavrovsky, while Shurale was staged by Leonid Veniaminovich Yakobson to music of the Tatar composer Färit Yarullin.
