The diaries of Vaslav Nijinsky( Visual )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Feature-length dramatised documentary takes an intimate look at one of the most celebrated dance/choreographers of the 20th Century, and undisputedly the greatest male dancer of his era. The program is based on Vaslav Nijinsky's own diary, Cahiers, written in 1919 during an extremely traumatic period of his life. Because no film exists of Nijinsky as a dancer, the program utilises photography and re-creates famous ballets and salient moments of his life. It celebrates Nijinsky the dancer, and also explores the mind of a genius on the verge of madness

The tragedy of Nijinsky by Anatole Bourman( Book )

4 editions published in 1937 in English and Undetermined and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The career of Vaslav Nijinsky, genius of the dance, is endlessly fascinating. Anatole Bourman entered the Russian Imperial Ballet School at the same time as Nijinsky and became one of his closest friends, and for many years followed his development and career, first as a member of the Imperial Ballet, and later as star of Diaghilev's Ballets Russes. He tells the part of Nijinsky's story which other biographers have left untold - his youthful ambitions and defeats, his brilliant rise to fame, his exploits with other students, the almost incredible ill fortune which followed him from the first. The author gives his interpretation of Nijinsky's later career, which differs from the stories others have told
