Hey there, lucky San Francisco dance fans: There's a pretty amazing exhibition happening at the de Young Museum right now, "Rudolf Nureyev: A Life in Dance." If features a display of 80 costumes that the dance legend and his co-stars wore—which is especially fitting because Nureyev was famously involved in creating the costumes for his performances. It's a fascinating slice of ballet history.
And if you visit tonight, there's a bonus. The museum is giving a multimedia presentation, "From Tutu to Haute Couture: Costume and the Ballet," which will not only go through the history of ballet costumes but also include a performance and fashion show by talented San Francisco Ballet School trainees. Plus, it's free! Get the details here.
Not in Cali? Take a Nureyev video break anyway. Watch this beautiful clip of the star with Margot Fonteyn in Romeo and Juliet—or this one of Nureyev with, ahem, Miss Piggy in Swan Lake!
