Director

Maya Plisetskaya is in every sense an exceptional personality. Like almost no other dancer, the eternal prima ballerina assoluta of the Bolshoi Theater understood how to combine outstanding dance skills with dramatic expression. There are also very few dancers who can look back on such a long and active career. A homage to her inimtable creative work, this film features an fascinating interview in which Maya Plisetskaya describes her life as a dancer - which is simultaneously a whole chapter of Russian history, from Stalin to perestroika.
