    One thought on “Yo, Maya Plisétskaya”

    1. Absolutely adorable, especially the parts where she wrote about her life with her husband, Rodion Shchedrin.

    2. The truth behind the Iron Curtain of ballet's greatest mother country, Russia. I know ballet didn't officially start here, but let's face it: Russia OWNS ballet now. And, Maya P. is a goddess, a warrior, and a miracle. Photographs of here dancing en pointe past the age of 60, looking like she's 30, and talking about eating cat food to survive on the salary Russia gave her even while throngs of fans worshipped her this book is INSPIRING.She is one of my all-time ballet heroines, and I hope someon [...]

    3. Huomaan olevani Elämäkertoja Neuvosto-Venäjältä -putkessa. Olen lukenut tänä kesänä molemmat Haapasalot ja nyt tämän taipuisista käsivarsistaan tunnetun tanssijan elämäkerran. Vuonna 1925 syntynyt Maija Plisetskaja ehti kokea Neuvostoliiton kaikessa paskamaisuudessaan (lievempi adjektiivi ei olisi tehnyt tälle oikeutta). Toisin kuin moni muu aikansa kuuluisa tanssija, hän ei kuitenkaan koskaan loikannut länteen. Syitä kyllä olisi riittänyt! Plisetskaja aloittaa tarinansa laps [...]

    4. This book was a little bit boring for me. It was erratic and felt more like a series of remiscences than a book. It had no clear outline and she kept writing about her 50s when the chapter was supposed to be about her 20s or 10s. There were countless digressions and mentions of names, meetings that sometimes, it was tedious to keep up. I was also looking for a ballet book but Plisetskaya was more interested in telling her miserable and repressed life in Russia. I am more interested in how she da [...]

    5. A truly inspiring story of a talented woman, who despite the overwhelming reining communist regime succeedes in making a brilliant career. The societal background is well-explained even to the Western readers, who haven't experienced life in the USSR, which seems quite unbelievably harsh and unfair at times. M.Plissetskaya is definitely one of those strong women, who understands the reality of a desperate situation, but maintains her fixity of purpose nethertheless. The book seems to frankly dis [...]

    6. Читается очень тяжело. Майя Плисецкая всю жизнь вела дневник, в котором подробно записывала кто, когда и сколько зла ей сделал. А таких "недоброжелателей", судя по ее воспоминаниям, было очень много, практически весь руководящий класс СССР и, естественно, весь балетный мир. Э [...]

    7. This one was tough to get through, as I wasn't really in the mood for a book that was so all over the place. To be fair, it was an acceptable format for memoirs. It did have some very interesting parts interspersed all through. But I did also get lost in the Russian names at some points.

    8. Omaelämäkerrassaan ballerina Maija Plisetskaja kertoo vaiheikkaasta elämästään. Välillä mukana on erittäin kiinnostavia kohtia ja aikakausia. Toisinaan taas tylsistyin liian yksityiskohtaiseen ja toisteiseen kerrontaan.

    9. Her biography is truly amazing and you learn a lot about what ballet used to be like / how Russia was a couple of decades ago.It also has some beautiful pictures of Maya!

    10. She has had an interesting life. I liked getting to hear about what it was like to live in Russia back in the day.
