The Great Ballets of Rudolf Nureyev: La Bayadere

More Views

Rudolf Nureyev’s sumptuous production of La Bayadère had its premiere at the Palais Garnier in Paris on 8 October 1992. Everybody who was anybody in French society and dance was present, because after the performance Nureyev was to receive the highest cultural honour France may bestow: the rank of ‘Commandeur des Arts et Lettres’ of the Legion of Honour. It was one of Nureyev’s final public appearances and he died only a few weeks later, on 6 January 1993.

La Bayadère is the ideal demonstration of the diverse talents of the Paris company, which had become the world’s finest ballet ensemble since Nureyev’s appointment as Artistic Director ten years earlier. This DVD, part of a documentary series dedicated to the great Nureyev ballets, comprises scenes from the La Bayadère premiere alongside rehearsal and interview footage featuring principal ballerinas Elisabeth Platel and Isabelle Guérin.
