The panel discussion is this Saturday 10am at the de Young. From their email:

Internationally recognized as the world’s most celebrated ballet dancer of his time, Rudolf Nureyev demanded perfection–from the meticulous footwork and athleticism of his choreography to the delicate details of his costumes. Immerse yourself in a dramatic installation of original costumes and photographs highlighting the spellbinding theatricality of the original dance superstar.
