This concluding chapter describes events after Yakobson's death. After his death, his widow, Irina, was appointed temporary director of Choreographic Minitures. However, no longer welcomed in Russia, Irina tried to move to Israel and in 1982 went to live in the U.S. There she found work at the Dutch National Ballet and became a masterful ballet teacher and coach. In 2000, Russia started the process of rehabilitating its lost heritage, and officially embraced Yakobson's work. In contrast to during Yakobson's time, Russian officials considered his work as part of their nationalism project, and they staged revivals of his ballets in 2001–2014.
