Rudolph Nureyev was born March 17th, 1938. Had it not been for his untimely demise, he would have celebrated his eighty third birthday today. Lately, as I reflected on his massive and more obvious talent as a dancer, I realize that I am equally impressed with the brilliance of his choreography. I played my old clunky recorded version of his Cinderella starring the unflappable Sylvie Guillem until it was unplayable. Then there was his stunning rendition of the Nutcracker during one of those televised Nutcracker marathons that flooded my sensibilities even to a standing ovation from my living room. I wonder if my enthusiasm for Nureyev's choreography is also shared by those within the art form who are far more experienced and perceptive than I ?
