Summary
News story on Rudolf Nureyev, filmed in New York City during the Royal Ballet's season at the Metropolitan Opera House in May 1974. Although much of the interview takes place at the Russian Tea Room, Nureyev is also seen in other settings: on the plaza at Lincoln Center ; in the ballet class of Madame Valentina Pereyaslavec ; in studio rehearsals ; in his dressing room between the acts of Frederick Ashton's La fille mal gardée. He discusses various aspects of performing, among them his approach to new roles, his reputation for being temperamental, and dealing with criticism. In a brief interview, ballerina Merle Park notes his special qualities as a dancer. Nureyev and Park are seen onstage in excerpts from the Flower festival at Genzano pas de deux, and in a studio rehearsal of excerpts from La fille mal gardée. Nureyev is also briefly seen rehearsing Manon with choreographer Kenneth MacMillan.
