About this event

Rudolf Nureyev was one of the greatest dancers of the 20th century.

His charisma and electrifying stage presence made him a superstar and he transformed the status and even the expected appearance of the male dancer.

Twenty years after his death the former director of the Royal Ballet, Dame Monica Mason, who partnered him in Hamlet, and his biographer, Julie Kavanagh, celebrate his life and legacy. Presented by Samira Ahmed.

Recorded in front of an audience at the Royal College of Music as part of this year's Proms Plus events.
