Maya Plisetskaya

Yale University Press

In this chapter, Maya Plisetskaya reflects on her fifty years on the ballet stage and her performances in 1993, when her native Russia was on the brink of a civil war. Maya continued her rehearsals at the Bolshoi Theater as the Supreme Soviet spouted speeches expressing their desire to bring back communism. Maya's jubilee at the Bolshoi Theater took place on October 6. The orchestra rehearsed the Entr'acte to Act 3 of Raymonda before Maya danced Isadora and Carmen Suite.
