Rudolf Nureyev, one of the most emblematic dancers of the 20th century, had it all: beauty, genius, charm, passion and sex appeal.
No other dancer of our time has generated the same emotion, both for men and women, on and off stage.
In this magnificent biography, Julie Kavanagh skillfully takes us through the professional and personal milestones of Nureyev's life and career: his education at the Kirov School in Leningrad; his controversial defection from the USSR in 1961; his long romance with Danish dancer Erik Bruhn; his legendary association with Margot Fonteyn at the Royal Ballet in London.
We see his ardent collaborations with almost every major living choreographer, including Ashton, Balanchine, Robbins, Graham and Taylor.
And we see Nureyev revitalizing the Paris Opera in the early 1980s, before his death from complications of AIDS in 1993.
Nureyev: The Life is the most intimate, revealing and dramatic image we have had of this dazzling and complex figure.
