Rudolf Nureyev's Don Quixote (U)

A man serenades a woman in a street in period dress

The 50th anniversary of perhaps the best dance film ever made, with the best male ballet dancer of all time in the peak of his career.

Filmed in 1973 in an airport hangar in 40 degrees over 25 days, Rudolf Nureyev and Sir Robert Helpmann, along with The Australian Ballet created Don Quixote, the film, also known as The Impossible Dream.

With cinematography by Geoffrey Unsworth (Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey and Bob Fosse's Cabaret), the film has been acclaimed worldwide, as the best dance film ever made!

To celebrate the 50th anniversary, for the first time cinema audiences around the world will be able to enjoy the re-mastered, restored and re-orchestrated film.  Nureyev, regarded as the greatest male ballet dancer of all time, was at the peak of his career when this film was made.
