A review of "Nureyev: Legend and Legacy" by Rupert Christiansen in The Spectator.


In any case, like him or not, he has become ingrained in the mythology of ballet, as this gala Nurevev: Legend and Legacy, curated by Nehemiah Kish, set out to demonstrate. It was a sincere and courageous effort to honour this dieu de la danse, but like so many of these ad hoc affairs it was hampered by endless rounds of clappity-clap, last-minute substitutions, an absence of any real thematic coherence and a shortage of money – with the orchestra perforce located on stage behind a scrim, there were no backcloths and only very restricted lighting. The result looked inelegant and did the dancers no favours.
