In this chapter, Maya Plisetskaya talks about her tour to Paris in October 1961 when she was invited by the Paris Opera with partner Nikolai Fadeyechev to dance three productions of Swan Lake under the choreography of Vladimir Burmeister. Burmeister first did Swan Lake on the stage of the Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Musical Theater in Moscow in April 1953 before moving it to Paris in 1960. Maya's Swan Lake in Paris was a rousing success. One of her spectators was Ingrid Bergman. Maya followed it up with performances of Maurice Béjart's Isadora, Leda, and Bolero, Roland Petit's ballets, Serge Lifar's Phèdre, and her own Anna Karenina, Lady with the Dog, and Carmen Suite, along with concert pieces. Over her many trips to France, Maya must have spent a hundred hours of her life with Lifar, a French ballet dancer and choreographer.
