"Nureyev and Petipa" a fascinating French documentary made in 1996 by the Cinematheque de la Danse. This is both a biography of Nureyev and a reflection on the links between the French choreographer, Marius Petipa(1818-1910), who spent much of his working life in Russia and the Nureyev, who re-mounted several of Petipa's ballets in the West. The film includes interviews with Nureyev and many film clips of him in his famous roles.
