The article presents part 4 of the "Memoirs of a Ballerina of the St. Petersburg Imperial Bolshoi Kamenny Theatre," which documents the author's experiences in various ballet productions. In 1874, she appeared for the first time in a long ballet entitled "Le Papillon," where Marius Petipa created a great number of dances. Furthermore, Petipa produced her benefit performance of "Les Bandits," a piece with an uninteresting libretto and choreography.
