Abstract:

Exploration of Rudolf Nureyev's legendary status in contrast to some darker aspects of his life. This documentary examines Nureyev's influential position in the 1960s as a crossover figure and contributor to the redefinition of traditional notions of masculinity ; the sufferings of his family in Russia after his defection ; his displacement of male dancers at the Royal Ballet ; the persistence of his reputation as the world's greatest dancer despite his shortcomings as a classical technician ; the paradox of his open homosexuality offstage and his onstage persona of a woman's romantic hero, an image fostered by his partnership with Margot Fonteyn ; the premature ebbing of his technical facility, which was exacerbated by his break with the Royal Ballet and frenetic career as a freelance artist ; his unrelenting desire to dance, which drove him to perform until 1992, the year before his death. The program includes dance excerpts performed by Nureyev and others.
