Maya Plisetskaya

Yale University Press

In this chapter, Maya Plisetskaya recounts how her mother suffered after her father's arrest. Maya continued to attend ballet school, performing on the stage of the Bolshoi Theater. She attended all the dress rehearsals at the Bolshoi, both ballet and opera. She danced the Breadcrumb Fairy in Sleeping Beauty, flowers in Rimsky-Korsakov's Snegurochka, and the cat in The Little Stork. Meanwhile, her mother began selling off things to earn a living. One day, she suddenly disappeared, never to be seen again.
