Maya Plisetskaya

Yale University Press

In this chapter, Maya Plisetskaya focuses on her time in Spain, where she worked as head of the National Ballet of Madrid's classical troupe. Prior to the invitation, Maya danced Anna Karenina and Carmen Suite in Spain with the Odessa Theater and then The Seagull, Lady with the Dog, and solo numbers with a splinter group of the Bolshoi Ballet. Her Spanish ballet was successful in Spain and earned her a second invitation. When José Manuel Garrido, deputy minister of culture of Spain, came to Moscow, he asked Maya if she wanted to lead the classical troupe of the National Ballet of Madrid. In Spain, she was attracted by the works of José Granero and danced the opera-ballet Le Villi by Giacomo Puccini.
