I, Maya Plisetskaya

Maya Plisetskaya

Yale University Press

In this chapter, Maya Plisetskaya talks about how she dressed as a ballerina, what she wore, and where and from whom she bought her wardrobe. She reveals that everything she wore was purchased from Klara, a sorceress who lived in Moscow who had other clients at the Bolshoi Ballet. Nikita Khrushchev once told Maya that she was dressed beautifully and asked whether she was rich. She strongly believed that that her ballets Anna Karenina, The Seagull, and Lady with the Dog received recognition due to Pierre Cardin's costumes.
