Remembering Nureyev

It’s been ten years since Rudolf Nueyev died. He has a long relationship with the city of Vienna, and the Staatsoper has staged a commemoration of his career. “The programme insisted upon Nureyev as apostle of the Russian classic repertory. It is only as you consider the list of his stagings, the revisions and re-workings that constantly occupied him, that you realise the ceaseless energy, the prodigious determination to ‘do better’, that marked Nureyev’s creative life.
