In the year that marks the 30th anniversary of the death of one of the most magnificent dancers and choreographers of all time, Rudolf Nureyev, this special exhibition – forming part of Slovenia’s 1st International Ballet Festival – chronicles some of the greatest moments in the storied and glittering career of this legendary Soviet-born artist. The exhibition will showcase stage costumes and as yet unpublished photos by the French photographer Francette Levieux from the personal collection of Charles Jude, a former principal dancer of the Opéra de Paris who danced alongside the famous Nureyev. Nureyev was particular about his costumes; the exhibits include elaborately designed and embellished doublets (close-fitting jackets), which are typical of the artist’s choice in costume design. Dressed in these doublets, he danced in such classical ballet pieces as Swan Lake, Giselle and Don Quixote. Francette Levieux’s photographs feature some of Nureyev’s most memorable moments on stage, bearing witness to his brilliant artistry. Accompanying the 1st International Ballet Festival, the exhibition honours this charismatic artist and offers an insight into Nureyev’s life and work that continue to inspire ballet dancers around the world.
The exhibition is dedicated to Nureyev, the most charismatic dancer of his time. Showcasing stage costumes and photos of some of Nureyev’s most memorable moments on stage, it offers an insight into the artist’s legacy that continues to inspire ballet dancers around the world.
All CD exhibitions will be CLOSED for maintenance between 2 and 4 August.
In cooperation with the Nureyev Foundation
