Yale University Press

In this chapter, Maya Plisetskaya focuses on her married life with Rodion Shchedrin, with whom she shared an apartment on Kutuzovsky Prospect in Moscow. She also talks about her maid, Ekaterina Alexeyevna Zhamkova. Maya and Rodion spent their free evenings on Kutuzovsky with Lilya Yuryevna Brik and Vasily Abgarovich Katanyan, her last husband. Meanwhile, Vera Stroyeva began filming Khovanshchina based on Dmitri Shostakovich's orchestration of Modest Petrovich Mussorgsky's opera at Mosfilm Studios. Maya danced the Persian for the ballet. From time to time she would charm distinguished visitors with performances such as Swan Lake and signed up for fewer concerts. Maya began rehearsing the second version of Sergei Sergeyevich Prokofiev's The Stone Flower. Nikita Khrushchev appointed Alexander Shelepin as KGB head.
