SYNOPSIS

Jeune prodige du célèbre ballet du Kirov, Rudolf Noureev est à Paris en juin 1961 pour se produire sur la scène de l’Opéra. Fasciné par les folles nuits parisiennes et par la vie artistique et culturelle de la capitale, il se lie d’amitié avec Clara Saint, jeune femme introduite dans les milieux huppés. Mais les hommes du KGB chargés de le surveiller ne voient pas d’un bon œil ses fréquentations « occidentales » et le rappellent à l’ordre. 

Confronté à un terrible dilemme, Noureev devra faire un choix irrévocable, qui va bouleverser sa vie à jamais. Mais qui va le faire entrer dans l’Histoire.

Noureev, Rudolf

Ballet dancer and choreographer Rudolf Nureyev was born, the youngest child and only son to a peasant family of Tatar heritage, on March 17, 1938, in Irkutsk, Russia. When Germany invaded the U.S.S.R., Rudolf and his family evacuated from Moscow to Ufa, Bashkir. Although the family lived in poverty there, Rudolf's mother, Farida, managed to buy a single ticket  and sneak her children into the opera. At his first glimpse of ballerina Zaituna Nazretdinova, Rudolf knew he wanted to become a dancer.


At the age of 11, Nureyev started ballet classes, studying with Anna Udeltsova. A year and a half later, began training with Elena Vaitovich.


Nureyev started dancing professionally as an extra at the local opera when he was 15. From there he landed a job with the corps de ballet and toured with them in Moscow. 


When Nureyev turned 17, he was accepted into the Leningrad Ballet School, where Alexander Ivanovich Pushkin became his teacher. When he graduated, Nureyev accepted a soloist contract with the Kirov Ballet in St. Petersburg and debuted opposite Natalia Dudinskaya. Over the next few years, he danced an additional 15 major roles in productions at the Kirov Theater, including The Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake.


In 1961, Nureyev and the Kirov company toured in Paris. That year, he also made his London debut at ballerina Margot Fonteyn's yearly gala for the Royal Academy of Dancing. As a result, Nureyev was invited to dance with Fonteyn during the following year's gala. Their chemistry as a dance team would captivate audiences and garner large fees for years to come, although the partnership was never exclusive. Nureyev's gallery performance was also the start of his long-lasting relationship with the Royal Ballet, his home base up until the mid-1970s.


Nureyev took his first stab at choreography in 1964 with revised versions of Raymonda and Swan Lake. He would go on to re-choreograph four more ballets during his career.


In 1977 Nureyev was considered for the position of director at the Royal Ballet. At the time, he refused because he wanted to continue his dancing career. Six years later, he accepted the job as ballet director for the Paris Opera, which permitted him to continue dancing six months out of the year. During this time, Nureyev began to take on roles in films such as Valentino and Exposed

In the years preceding his death, Nureyev expanded his repertoire to include orchestral conducting. He died of AIDS on January 6, 1993, in Paris.

La biographie qui a inspiré le film de Ralph Fiennes

NOUREEV

Une vie

de Julie Kavanagh


Rudolf Noureev (1938-1993), le plus célèbre danseur de la seconde moitié du XXe siècle, avait tout pour lui : beauté, génie, charme et sex-appeal. Nul autre danseur n'a provoqué autant d'effervescence autour de lui.

Dans sa biographie, Julie Kavanagh explore la vie et le destin hors normes du "seigneur de la danse" : son enfance, ses années de formation à l'école Kirov de Leningrad, sa fuite controversée d'URSS en 1961, sa relation avec le danseur danois Erik Bruhn, sa collaboration légendaire avec la danseuse Margot Fonteyn au Royal Ballet de Londres, ses rencontres avec de brillants chorégraphes, tels Balanchine, Robbins ou Graham, son rôle de directeur de ballet à l'Opéra de Paris, ses dernières années jusqu'à sa mort en 1993 des suites du sida.

Mais c'est également l'ambiguïté du personnage que révèle cet ouvrage : s'il dansait comme un dieu, son comportement était d'une rare violence. Noureev aimait à se dépeindre lui-même comme un envahisseur barbare. Le chorégraphe Jerome Robbins ne disait-il pas de lui : "Rudi est un artiste, un animal et un salaud" ?

Entre le danseur plein de grâce et l'homme acrimonieux, cette biographie éclaire sans complaisance un mythe incandescent. La définition même du monstre sacré.
