A Ballet-Film dedicated to the grand ballets by Rudolf Nureyev (1938 - 1993)

Rudolf Nureyev was a force in the dance world, and his contributions were enormous and revolutionary.

His superior talent and charismatic presence drew millions of people to the ballet for the first time, creating a worldwide audience for dance. His technical prowess and masculine style made dancing once again an acceptable profession for men.

Nureyev's choreography for Romeo and Juliet was created for the London Festival Ballet in 1977.

In 1984, shortly after he had taken over as director of the ballet of the Paris Opera, he produced a large-scale and gloriously colourful fresco for the company of the Paris Opera. It is this version, with its magnificent renaissance decor by Ezio Frigerio and the luxurious costumes, that we are treated on this DVD. This ballet is one of the most magnificent productions ever staged at the Paris Opera.
