Relive a performance in Vienna that went down in ballet history 60 years ago, when a young Rudolf Nureyev staged his legendary interpretation of "Swan Lake."

Hailed as one of the most captivating dance works ever, perfectly capturing the noble and volatile spirit of classical ballet.

Nureyev placed greater emphasis on the "Swan Lake" character of Prince Siegfried, aiming to elevate the main male role to the level of the female lead. He partnered with prima ballerina Dame Margot Fonteyn, and together, they formed a partnership that endured for many years.
