About the Film:

Rudolf Nureyev | Ballet in Four Acts | Music by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky | 107 mins.

Balletomanes will not want to miss this never-before-seen high-definition restoration of a historic 1966 performance of Swan Lake (Tchaikovsky) at the Vienna State Opera House, starring Rudolf Nureyev and Margot Fonteyn. Choreographed by Rudolf Nureyev and conducted by John Lanchbery, with the Wiener Symphoniker orchestra. Nureyev and Fonteyn revolutionized the world of ballet by crossing the borders between classical ballet and modern dance. Hailed as the greatest ballet partnership of all time, Nureyev once said that they danced with “one body and one soul.”
