Summary
Unedited footage of an interview recorded by Landseer Films (Ross MacGibbon) for Rudolf Nureyev, variations on an enigma, a promotional video commissioned by Christie's in connection with two auctions of Rudolf Nureyev's collections, held in New York in January 1995 and in London in November 1995. In this video, ballerina Merle Park, Nureyev's longtime partner and friend, remembers him as a dancer and private person. She recalls creating and dancing the role of Clara in his version of The nutcracker, and tells a story of potential disaster at the ballet's New York premiere. Speaking from personal observation, she describes his perfectionism and unflagging energy, and paints a vivid word-picture of him in rehearsal. She also recalls her experiences in the company Nureyev and Friends, which she joined as a charter member.
