Ralph Fiennes' THE WHITE CROW
Written by legendary Academy Award winning playwright David Hare and directed by Ralph Fiennes, the captivating story of a young Rudolf Nureyev, famed Russian ballet dancer, and his defection from the Soviet Union after a life-changing visit to Paris.
Actor-turned-director Ralph Fiennes captures the raw physicality and brilliance of Rudolf Nureyev, whose escape to the West stunned the world at the height of the Cold War. Nureyev is played by world-class ballet performer Oleg Ivenko. With his magnetic presence, Nureyev emerged as ballet’s most famous star, a wild and beautiful dancer limited by the world of 1950s Leningrad. His flirtation with Western artists and ideas led him into a high-stakes game of cat and mouse with the KGB. David Hare’s drum-tight script offers a thrilling insight into his dangerous defection, masterminded by the dancer’s great friend, 21-year-old Parisian, Clara Saint.
