Nureyev's Show
3 December 1999 | by See all my reviews



Nureyev in his prime and Fonteyn at her most accomodating. Why Nureyev chose to scuttle the traditional Black Swan music is a mystery of the production. It's a glaring flaw although Fonteyn does her best, fouettes and all, in his watery choreography for the dramatic pas de deux. There's not too much of a selection for ballet on DVD at the moment and for lovers of Nureyev, this is his show. (Hint to DVD producers; how about releases of DTH's "Creole Giselle" and "Firebird". They should be visually stunning in DVD format.)
