Permanent Nureyev Collection Exhibit in France

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I occasionally browse through the Rudolf Nureyev Foundation website, which I find well maintained and valuable  http://www.nureyev.org/  and once again discovered something thanks to it :  there is a permanent exhibit of Nureyev's costumes and memorabilia and a reconstruction of his apartment with his furniture and beloved kilims. It's at the "Centre National du Costume de Scene" in Moulins-sur-Allier, 2½ hours by train from Paris : http://www.cncs.fr/?language=en-gb

There is a "virtual exhibition" on the CNCS website : https://artsandculture.google.com/exhibit/fwISGAyB_7ISIQ

I have already started thinking about a three night visit to Paris, going to Moulins for this exhibit on one day, and going to Nureyev's grave at Ste-Genevieve-des-bois outside Paris on the other (something I have wanted to do for many years but never could). Ezio Frigerio's design for Nureyev's grave is stunning and for me well worth a visit.

Do a bit of research before booking a trip as there is a lot of industrial action in France right now and the railways are the most seriously affected.  I'm going to Paris at the end of next month, so have a few worries already, especially about it spreading to airports and the metro.  Do read this BBC article.
