Rudolf Nureyev

Rudolf Nureyev (March 17, 1938 Irkutsk-January 6, 1993 Levallois-Perret) also known as Rudolf Noureev, Rudi or Rudolf Khametovich Nureyev was an Austrian ballet master, actor, screenwriter, film director, ballet dancer and choreographer.

Considered one of the greatest male ballet dancers of the 20th century, Nureyev began his career with the Kirov Ballet in Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) and later defected to the West in 1961, becoming a principal dancer with the Royal Ballet in London. He went on to dance with many other prestigious ballet companies including the American Ballet Theatre, the Paris Opera Ballet and the Vienna State Opera Ballet.

Nureyev was known for his athleticism, dynamic performances, and his ability to bring a sense of drama and emotion to his roles on stage. He also collaborated with prominent choreographers such as George Balanchine and Jerome Robbins to create new works that pushed the boundaries of classical ballet.

In addition to his achievements in dance, Nureyev was also known for his flamboyant personality and his relationships with various high-profile figures, including socialite Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and pop icon Freddie Mercury. He continued to dance and choreograph until his death from complications related to AIDS in 1993.
