Editorial Reviews

Rudolf Nureyev's version of La Bayadère, which takes up a whole evening, had its premiere at the Palais Garnier in
Paris on 8 October 1992. Everybody who was anybody in French ballet and society was present, because after the
performance Nureyev was to receive the highest cultural honour France had to bestow, the rank of 'Commandeur des
Arts et Lettres' of the Legion of Honour. It was one of Nureyev's last public appearances; he already showed the signs of
AIDS and died a few weeks later, on 6 January 1993.
La Bayadère proved to be the perfect piece for demonstrating the diverse talents of the Paris company, which had
become the best ballet ensemble in the world since Nureyev had been appointed Artistic Director ten years earlier.

I didn't read the fine print, so I didn't realize that this was a documentary. However, it is beautifully done. The interviews are wonderful, although in French. The English subtitles are just fine. It was exciting to see the original dancers that Nureyev had "made" this version on and to see them both dancing and training the next generation.

The camera work and editting on this film are seamless as we are moved from the rehearsal studio to the stage rehearsals, then on to the performances.

All in all, this is a video worth having and watching over and over as it captures a rare moment in time and at the end of Nureyev's life.

A similar documentary was done on Raymonda. It, too, is worth having. It would be nice to have the full length ballets.

All four DANCER'S DREAM documentary's (Romeo and Juliet, Sleeping Beauty, Raymonda and La Bayadere) are now available in a box set: Dancer's Dream: Great Ballets of Rudolf Nureyev. BRAVO! Reality t.v for the ballet obsessed.
