‘A gripping account of an unusual lifestyles’ Daily Telegraph
Born on a teach in Stalin’s Russia, Rudolf Nureyev used to be ballet’s first pop icon. No different dancer of our time has generated the similar pleasure – each off and on degree.
Nureyev’s achievements and conquests turned into mythical: he rose out of Tatar peasant poverty to develop into the Kirov’s exciting maverick superstar; slept along with his liked mentor’s spouse; defected to the West in 1961; sparked Rudimania around the globe; dependent probably the most rhapsodic partnership in dance historical past with the center-elderly Margot Fonteyn; reinvented male methodology; gatecrashed up to date dance; moulded new stars; and staged Russia’s unknown ballet masterpieces within the West. He and his lifestyles had been merely wonderful.
