MOSCOW. The AST Publishing House published the memoirs of Azaria Plisetskaya.
Memories of the stars and those who imagine themselves to be such, the counters of all bookstores are filled up. The secret, awkward, senseless and merciless falls out to the meticulous television interviewers. PR, money, oblivion - but there are few reasons that can spodvignat on the soulful striptease. Only in isolated cases does the memoir leave a warm feeling in the soul from the contact with the amazing fate of a worthy person. "Family chronicles Plisetskih and Messererov" - of their number.
Azarius Plisetskiy - a name in the ballet world known and respected. Participation in the creation of the National Ballet of Cuba, many years of work there as a leading soloist, teacher, choreographer and director. Collaboration with Rolan Petit, Maurice Bejart, Mikhail Baryshnikov, John Neumeier, George Balanchine School, productions and master classes in opera houses in Tokyo, Sofia, Madrid, Montreal, Kiev, Rome, Paris, Stuttgart, Moscow, St. Petersburg. Work in film and television.
In recent years, Plisetskiy lives in Lausanne, which became for him a happy city. Here he met his wife, PhD, professor of the Federal Polytechnic School (EPFL), Lyubov Kivi-Minsker. Their first fleeting meeting took place in Novosibirsk, where she then lived and taught at NSU. But the family alliance was formed in a quiet Swiss city. Azary Mikhailovich works as a teacher-tutor in the famous school-studio of Maurice Bejar (Rudra Béjart School Lausanne) practically since its foundation in 1992.
"Rudra" is an international school that future stars of the ballet are dreaming of. Training in it is free of charge thanks to the support of private foundations and companies. Here they teach not only the art of dance, but the ability to adequately meet any challenges, respect the rights and characteristics of other people. Sublimating your emotions and feelings not in aggression or negativity, but in the desire to work more on yourself and achieve your goals.
Azarius Plisetskiy adheres to these principles all his life, full of tragedies, sharp turns and unthinkable gifts of fate. He takes every new day he has lived as a gift. A boy who never saw his father and was born three months after his arrest in 1937. Mikhail Plisetskiy was a diplomat, general consul of the USSR in Spitsbergen. The "Arktikugol" trust that he directed was engaged in the extraction of black gold at the "Barentsburg" mine since November 1932. As part of a group of Soviet polar explorers, there was also Azaria’s elder sister, the seven-year-old Maya. After experiencing unbearable tortures, he confessed to non-existent crimes only for the opportunity to learn that his son was born to him.
Soon my father was shot, and my mother, the star of silent movies Rachel Messerer, with a baby in my arms was sent to ALZHIR - Akmola camp wives of traitors to the homeland. To rescue the sister from this fatal place and to achieve the transfer to the settlement in Shymkent, Aunt Azaria, the famous ballerina Sulamith Messerer, succeeded.
And then - a great life. The red diploma of the Moscow Ballet School, signed by Galina Ulanova, the refusal to distribute to the Bolshoi - "too many Plisetskys in one theater". Duet with Lepeshinskaya, departure to Cuba, successful career abroad.
Memoirs Plisetskogo - a story about the ballet, a large family, loss and love. The life story of a worthy and very talented person, grateful to those who were close, cared for, saved, taught, opened up new horizons.
