Nijinsky

One of the most legendarily brilliant and transformative figures in the history of ballet, Vaslav Nijinsky dominates the pantheon of 20th-century male dancers as much for his contributions to the art form as his turbulent, tragic life. John Neumeier’s moving, unflinching ballet is a portrait of the artist’s inner journey, providing a glimpse into the soul of an artist of unique and astonishing vision, whose life and works helped changed the face of modernity.
