Gorgeous photo of Nureyev taken by Richard Avedon
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!) ♥
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.
