    Rudolph Nureyev’s defection from the Soviet Union fascinated the world—and changed his life forever. One of the more interesting pulp events of the 1960s occurred when a little-known ballet dancer named Rudolph Nureyev broke away from two Russian guards at Le Bourget airport in Paris and dashed through a security station shouting in English, “I want to be free!” It was one of the first high-profile defections.

Rudolph Nureyev (Joy Jacobs via siriah onto S H A Y-n u h. p u h-N I M) Also had the great privilege to see Nureyev dance his last, in Toronto, at Roy Thomson Hall! He was well beyond jumps and turns, seriousy ill; but he was never more regal and dignified, even in a walk-through role! (We miss you Rudi!) ♥

Rudolf Nureyev by Richard Avedon. So much power, but with so much sensitivity when he danced... Every time i saw him perform, I was entranced.

"The trained dancer must not only have grace and elegance, but also the leap of an Olympic hurdler, the balance of a tight-rope walker and panther-like strength and agility." ~Camilla Jessel (*Dancer featured: Rudolf Nureyev)

Rudolph Nureyev. Born March 13, 1938 on a Trans-Siberian train near the city of Irkutsk Oblast, RUSSIA, one of the largest cities in Siberia. Was once rejected to the Bolshoi but eventually worked with the Kirov Ballet. Defected to France in 1961 despite the KGBs efforts to stop him. He was one of the most respected and celebrated dancers of the 20th century. He is missed.
