Rudolph Nureyev dancing

Nureyev

Considered the greatest male dancer the world has ever known, the story of “Lord of the Dance” Rudolf Nureyev’s extraordinary rise to fame is told through never-before-seen archival footage and spellbinding ballet sequences by award-winning choreographer Russell Maliphant. After defecting from the Soviet Union at the height of the Cold War, Nureyev went on to gain rock-star-like status in the West, symbolizing the divisive times in which he lived. At a moment when all eyes are on Russia, BAFTA nominated filmmakers David Morris and Jacqui Morris take a look behind the curtain to create a striking portrait of a cultural icon whose light still burns bright 25 years after his death.
