Rudolph: Leap to freedom

"Hellenic Cosmos" Cultural Centre

Athens, Attica

Leap to Freedom, a biographical play about Rudolf Nureyev, one of the greatest classical ballet dancers, returns to the stage of the “Hellenic Cosmos” Cultural Centre on the 19th & 20th of February 2024.

The performance is based on true events. The actual episodes of Nureyev's life that he describes are based on his own notes, books and vivid accounts of his friends and colleagues. Nureyev left behind a valuable legacy, radically modifying not only the rules of working in the world's finest theatre, but also the world standards of classical dance.

Leap to Freedom is a narrative about the last presence on stage of an inexhaustible talent. Nureyev's star shot into the sky as suddenly as it suddenly went out, leaving behind a glow that remains a landmark for all ballet dancers to this day.
