In case anyone’s interested, apropos of my Men At The Barre post the other day, I found the BBC docu-drama on YouTube - I just put in Dance to Freedom and it came up.
I did see the original but it’s well worth a 2nd watch - the story of the few months leading up to his defection, and what finally triggered his decision.
The young dancer who plays Nureyev is extraordinarily like him.
I can only have been 12, but I still remember vividly the headlines at the time - such a major thing at the height of the Cold War.
