The White Crow

February 22, 2021

Early life of Rudolf Nureyev, leading to his defection.

Film of Rudolf Nureyev as a boy and a young man leading to his defection to the West whilst touring in Paris with a group of Russian ballet dancers.

He was helped to defect by Clara Saint.

The film was inspired by the book Rudolf Nureyev: The Life by Julie Kavanagh. The title is a reference to his childhood nickname of white crow (similar meaning to “black sheep” in English), because he was unusual.
