Paul Turok
Turok’s Choice, June 2009

Dancer’s Dream: The Great Ballets of Nureyev – Minkus: La Bayadere (Paris National Opera, 2002) (NTSC)

Dancer’s Dream: The Great Ballets of Nureyev – Glazunov: Raymonda (Paris National Opera Ballet, 1999) (NTSC)

The great ballets of Nureyev, his choreographic take on Petipa’s La Bayadère and Raymonda, are the subject of documentaries (Bayadère 107023; Raymonda 107 015). Through interviews, especially with dancers who worked with Nureyev (who had worked with people who worked with Petipa), the tradition is enhanced. This is strictly for fans of ballet history. There are numerous samples of choreography, excerpts from the ballets in question, appreciations of Nureyev by ballet stars of the Paris Opera. What does not occur is a full presentation of either ballet. If that is what you are looking for, seek elsewhere.
