Editorial Reviews

No performer on the world stage received so much acclaim and publicity as Rudolf Nureyev, and no one gave away so little about their private life and thinking. In this definitive documentary made some twelve months before his death in 1993, Nureyev tells

It galls me that Nureyev is not as well-remembered as he should be. Baryshnikov deserves his fame, but Nureyev led the way, breaking the old mold that kept male dancers in the background. I believe our acceptance and ascent of strong male dancers even in the hip hop and music video worlds began with this charismatic genius, who stole the show just by walking onstage. But his magic didn't end at mere stage presence--the man moved in mysterious and inimitable ways, and when he leapt...he stopped your heart and stole your breath. It's hard to watch him in this particular video because he is only months away from passing away, and you can see he's struggling to be brave. But the excerpts from his most celebrated dances are wonderful and he tells his own story with a Puckish twinkle that makes the words come alive. If you really love dance...buy this DVD, in remembrance of one of the greatest dancers, ever.

I saw Nureyev since the 60's. He was the most wonderful dancer, as soon as he was on stage he
commanded it! he was the only dancer you noticed, even if the stage was full with other dancers!
I have seen this DVD at least 25 times since I
received it! Beautiful DVD!

This is a reissue of Patricia Foy's 1991 documentary NUREYEV previously released on another label with the same title. Check out the other labels NUREYEV for excellent video reviews.

This is a charming and informative DVD on Nureyev. I loved the interviews of people from his past in Russia(including a centarian who first taught him ballet in Uffa) and with the people who worked with him after his defection. He was truly a prodigy who lived up to his potential and helped to focus attention on the virtuosic dancing of male ballet dancers. He was dedicated to his art in a way that is becoming rare. His intelligence comes through so clearly in this production,

Anyone who loves ballet needs this documentary. Nureyev was the best dancer - ever. In my opinion he epitomizes the dance and his elegance and talent is shown here in an interesting, engaging well filmed way that you will enjoy. If you don't know much about ballet, here is your introduction. Get it for you, get it for your children.
