Rudolf Nureyev Documentary Film
Watch the newly restored I Am A Dancer film, when you want to get an inside look at Russian ballet legend Rudolf Nureyev.
His classical ballet performances are as beautiful today as they were, when first performed.
It is wonderful that the 1972 film has now been restored in HD, so the images are crisp and clear.
The dancing is beautiful, of course.
And getting to know more about the talented dancer helps me appreciate his work even more.

Additionally, there are sequences from the modern ballet Field Figures with Deanne Bergsma, and Frederick Ashton’s Marguerite and Armand with his long-time partner Margot Fonteyn.
