Maurice Bejart said once about Maya Plisetskaya: „Maya Plisetskaya is an exceptional being. She has a thorough understanding of the Classical tradition as taught by the Russians. She has learnt it, digested it, regurgitated it and processed it endlessly. She has reached absolute freedom in her technique and her life. She is beyond any kind of formalism. She knows the difference between tradition and dust.“ www.mezzo.tv/en/our-programs/maia_
