Thank you, innopac, for the "youtube" link. I'll be very happy that there will be subtitles.

Today would have been Rudi's 72nd birthday. Wow, it just seems so hard to believe. Happy birthday, Rudi, and thanks a million for the memories!

Rudolf Nureyev - Celestial Attraction (2010) is on Amazon for pre-order to be "released on April 27, 2010".

One concern is the back of the cover mentions "re-enactments".

There aren't any "re-enactments" as far as I can remember. It's a combination of old footage, interviews and what could be described as stock footage: a train station in Siberia, a boat floating along the Neva, a Parisian airport, London buses, New York taxis, and that sort of thing. As a matter of fact, I don't remember anyone from New York being interviewed, which makes me wonder whether the filmmakers were there at all.

The DVD is very good, although there wasn't enough footage of Rudi, but it was upbeat and complimentary (with just a few discrepancies). It was great seeing Karen Kain and Charles Jude again. And the best surprise for me - film clips of Rudi dancing La Bayadere with the Kirov - wonderful!

The DVD was in English, which surprised me as I thought it would be subtitles.
