In this chapter, Maya Plisetskaya reflects on her five decades as a ballerina. She marked her fiftieth year in the ballet world by dancing The Madwoman of Chaillot in the French city of Rennes in Brittany on April 2, 1993. It was exactly fifty years previously that she had been accepted into the Bolshoi Ballet troupe. She performed Anna Karenina at the Bolshoi more than a hundred times and danced it in other countries as well. Two of her other performances were for Anton Chekhov's The Seagull, which she danced around sixty times and was staged in the Swedish city of Göteborg, and Lady with the Dog, which she danced on her sixtieth birthday on the Bolshoi stage, along with Carmen Suite.
