Bolshoi to premiere previously canceled Nureyev ballet

Dancer Rudolf Nureyev conducts for the first time an ensemble in Deauville, Normandy, in 1991. The Bolshoi Theater on Saturday is to premiere a controversial ballet about dancer Nureyev after the original opening was postponed and its director arrested. The production’s opening was canceled on short notice in July, raising concerns that the ballet’s frank treatment of Nureyev’s gay relationships had offended authorities.

The Bolshoi Theater’s first night of the Nureyev ballet staged by Kirill Serebrennikov is scheduled for Saturday.
