PARIS, October 21 (Itar-Tass) - A permanent display of remarkable artifacts in honor of the renowned Russian choreographer Rudolf Nureyev (1938-1993) has opened at the museum of scene costumes in the French town of Moulins.
The great dancer’s personal items, photographs and videos telling the story of his life and work have been selected for the exhibition. The visitors will also see several paintings and statues that used to decorate his apartments in Paris and New York, with one of the halls reproducing the settings of his apartment in Paris, including sumptuous carpets and costly paintings.
The exhibition based on the artifacts from the collection of Rudolf Nureyev Foundation takes up an area of over more than 300 square meters and shows some ballet costumes of Nureyev himself and his partners Sylvie Guillem and Noëlla Pontois, including the famous silver-and-golden costume from The Nutcracker. Other sections chronicle in detail the Russian dancer’s creative endeavor, in particular, the novelties he contributed to both choreography and stage settings.
The exhibition gives a glimpse of the first steps Nureyev took along the path that would lead a future ballet genius to world fame - his early years in the city of Ufa, the time he spent studying at the Leningrad Choreographic College, and his first solo appearances on the stage of the Kirov Theatre (currently the Mariinsky Theatre).
