Maya Plisetskaya

Yale University Press

In this chapter, Maya Plisetskaya reflects on her grief and sorrow after the Soviet authorities did not allow her to leave the country until April 1959. She also talks about Spartacus and the Bolshoi Ballet's first crack at the Aram Khachaturian ballet, in which she played the part of Aegina. After the first performances of Spartacus, which was choreographed by Igor Moiseyev, she began to negotiate with Vakhtang Chabukiani about a possible repertoire.
