About this event

Ralph Fiennes’ third directorial outing is a thrilling biopic of virtuosic ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev, whose defection from the USSR stunned the world at the height of the Cold War.

In 1961, Soviet authorities send the Kirov Ballet to Paris to impress Western audiences, but one dancer causes a sensation far beyond the stage: the electrifying Rudolf Nureyev (Oleg Ivenko), who, drawn to the West’s permissive culture, enters into a high-stakes game of cat-and-mouse with the KGB. Inspired by Julie Kavanagh’s biography, scripted by David Hare, Fiennes’ evocative film depicts a wildly talented man whose astonishing life reverberated through the world.

A fascinating, intense portrayal of Nurayev, one of the most influential ballet dancers of last century, and his historic “leap for freedom” which would change the course of ballet and catapult the young Russian to stardom in the West.

About us

Dartington is an old place with a new story.

The Dartington Experiment began in 1925 and was based on the idea that humans are many-sided – and how we need environments that encourage our whole being to flourish, in connection with nature and each other.

This idea is as true today is it ever was.
