Album Summary

>Minkus, Léon : La Bayadere
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Rudolf Nureyev's version of 'La Bayadere', which takes up a whole evening, had its premiere at the Palais Garnier in Paris on 8 October 1992. Everybody who was anybody in French ballet and society was present, because after the performance Nureyev was to receive the highest cultural honour France had to bestow, the rank of 'Commandeur des Arts et Lettres' of the Legion of Honour. It was one of Nureyev's last public appearances; he already showed the signs of AIDS and died a few weeks later, on 6 January 1993.
