Eva Maze publishes memoir

Eva Maze memoir released Eva Maze, a former dancer and once prolific producer, has released her memoir With Ballet in My Soul: Adventures of a Globetrotting Impresario. Published by Moonstone Press LLC, the book is now being sold on Amazon. 


The memoir recounts the rich life of Maze, a woman committed to a professional vision ahead of its time, filled with “glamour, excitement and adventure.” Narrated in her own words, it shares how she left Romania as a teenager in 1939, dreaming of one day becoming a ballet dancer. Through a series of circumstances, Maze became one of the most successful theatrical impresarios in Europe instead – with a career spanning more than 40 years.


Now in her nineties, Maze looks back at the path and passion that led her from Bucharest to the United States as an immigrant, and then, as a married woman, back again to Europe and Asia, where she found her professional calling.


Set against key historical events of the 20th century, including the building of the Berlin Wall, the massacre at the 1972 Munich Olympic Games, as well as the rise and fall of Pan American Airlines, Maze’s fascinating past is brought to life through a combination of serious commentary and amusing anecdotes about the risks and rewards of the business side of theater and dance. It reveals some of the personalities who were part of those worlds from the 1940s to the 1990s, as well as her own motivation for being an impresario and her personal life. Her narration is supported by more than 250 historical and modern images, dating back to her birth in 1922.


Representing artists and companies abroad from a vast array of talent in the performing arts of the time – including Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater – this unique woman became a prolific producer of more than 100 different types of theatrical programs, from the world of dance to music, mime, cabaret and drama.
