The great Russian ballerina Maya Plisetskaya comes to life in this intense and funny monologue, speaking to us from a dance class on a stage, keeping an eye on her dancers, especially one rather clumsy one, as she shares with us her life and struggles to be a creative artist in the Soviet Union in the twentieth century. As she tells us her story we begin to understand her courage, stubbornness, humor and the great passion she has for her art. An inspiring play about creation, freedom, and never giving up as an artist or a person. Part of Nigro's ongoing cycle of Russian plays which includes Pushkin, Gogol, Dostoyevsky, An Angler In The Lake Of Darkness, Emotion Memory, A Russian Play, Rasputin, Nights At The Stray Dog Café, Mandelstam, Marina and others.
