Yale University Press

In this chapter, Maya Plisetskaya talks about how she met John Morgan, second secretary of the British Embassy, and the KGB's spying on them. Morgan was fluent in Russian and knowledgeable in ballet, especially English ballet. He asked Maya why she was not going to London and told her that Britain wanted her to come, insisting that the English public must see her Swan Lake. Since their meeting, a KGB car had been following Maya twenty-four hours a day.
