In this chapter, Maya Plisetskaya reflects on her performances in different parts of the world. First was Germany, joining her husband, Rodion Shchedrin, who had settled in Munich. In Moscow, perestroika still existed, and a dictatorship was looming. At the Colon theater in Argentina, Maya danced a new ballet called El Renidero (Cock Fight), which is based on the book by Sergio de Checco but whose plot comes from Electra. She traveled to Japan from Munich several times, performing almost her entire repertoire from Swan Lake to Mary Stuart and The Madwoman of Chaillot. Maya also appeared in a production of the local ballet By Django, staged by Gordon Schmidt, in Chicago. In the summer of 1991, she and her husband were in America, spending time in Ohio and Florida. In December of that year, Maya performed with the Vienna Opera for two evenings.
