Fall 2013/Remembering a Prince: A PNB Tribute to Rudolf Nureyev Seminar

Saturday, November 2, 2013; 3:00-5:00 pm
The Phelps Center, Jane Davis Board Room

Join Peter Boal with guests Elaine Bauer (Boston Ballet), Stephanie Saland (New York City Ballet), and Roslyn Anderson (Australian Ballet), who knew and danced with ballet icon Rudolf Nureyev (1938-1993) in remembering his artistic legacy through anecdotes, film, and images. Nureyev’s profound love of ballet is still impacting dance today, as evidenced by PNB’s recent receipt of the The Rudolf Nureyev Prize for New Dance, awarded by The Joyce Theater Foundation in 2012. Moderated by dance writer Leslie Holleran.
