Rudolf Nureyev, Personal Memories of a Genius - Lecture Series
Nureyev was a close friend to Robert and Jacqueline. This memoir shares material until now held private. Nureyev had a wonderful and generous side to his personality unknown to most, even those closest to him. He was a great influence on Robert's artistic life.
Nureyev so enjoyed working with Robert's Northern Ballet that he became Artist Laureate, an exclusive honor. He performed a varied repertoire in our productions, including the Tchaikovsky Trilogy of "Swan Lake," "Sleeping Beauty," and "The Nutcracker." He also danced in "Miss Julie" by Brigitte Cullberg, "The Lesson" by Flemming Flindt, "Les Sylphides" (mounted by Dame Alicia Markova), and Robert's own production of "Coppelia." He was an inspiration to the young company who cherished his presence and advice. We would often enjoy a fun moment after a performance, whether in England, France, Italy, or anywhere else.
