(p.177) Chapter Twenty-Nine Shchedrin
I, Maya Plisetskaya

Maya Plisetskaya

Yale University Press

In this chapter, Maya Plisetskaya focuses on the premiere of Spartacus on the stage of the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow on March 11, 1956, and her meeting with Rodion Shchedrin, her future husband. The rehearsal period for the Moscow production dragged on so long that Leonid Yakobson finished his work with the Aram Khachaturian score in Leningrad ahead of Igor Moiseyev. Maya invited a few friends to the Spartacus premiere and reserved two tickets for Shchedrin. The premiere was a success. The following day, Shchedrin told Maya that Vladimir Radunsky was working on a new Little Humpbacked Horse for the Bolshoi Theater and that he was enlightening Shchedrin as best he could about the ballet. By late August Maya was pregnant.
