Nureyev the Director and POB
Posted 31 March 2001 - 06:07 PM
As a viewer I'll admit I actively dislike Nureyev's productions of the classics (I think them overchoreographed and fussy and the dramaturgy that of a committed amateur freudian) but I think a strong case can be made for them organizationally and from the dancers' perspective, and both Manuel Legris and Guerin have done so in interviews. Legris basically said those productions are what maintain the company's technical level. I respected Guerin all the more for knowing what was good about the works and what wasn't, and loving them all the same.
I'd like to hear more about why you like them. I'm sure a case can be made from the audience's point of view as well.
