Summary
Documentary on the life and career of Rudolf Nureyev, told through interviews with the dancer. Topics include his childhood in the town of Ufa, where he studied folk dancing ; his ballet training with Anna Udeltsova and the Kirov School's Aleksandr Pushkin ; his early career with the Kirov Ballet ; his defection to the west and initial affiliation with the International Ballet of the Marquis de Cuevas ; his friendship with Erik Bruhn ; his partnership with Margot Fonteyn and tenure with the Royal Ballet ; the creation of Frederick Ashton's Marguerite and Armand ; productions he has mounted for other companies ; his contacts with George Balanchine ; his experimentation with modern dance ; his work as film actor and director ; and his leadership of the Paris Opéra Ballet. He is seen dancing in excerpts from Le corsaire, The sleeping beauty, The nutcracker, Giselle (with Fonteyn), Marguerite and Armand (with Fonteyn), Apollo, Pierrot lunaire, Aureole (with Vivi Flindt, Eva Kloborg, and Anne Sonnerup of the Royal Danish Ballet), Swine lake (with Miss Piggy), and his own stagings of Swan lake, The nutcracker (with Merle Park), Don Quixote, and Cinderella (with Sylvie Guillem and Charles Jude). Observations of Nureyev as a dancer and a private person are offered by his sister Rashida Evgrafova, his teachers Taisiam Khalturina and Anna Udel'︠t︡sova, and various colleagues and associates.
