The White Crow
Ralph Fiennes’ film tells the exhilarating story of Rudolf Nureyev’s defection to the West, capturing both his exquisite talents and the era’s explosive political situation.
Cuban ballet luminary Carlos Acosta is both star and subject of this moving and unusual fusion of biography and dazzling dance, by Spanish director Icíar Bollaín.
The Heart Dancers
The re-imagining of the iconic feature, The Piano, by two Czech dancers working with the Royal New Zealand Ballet: uncharted territory for all involved.
Leo Presents AM Present Paris Opera Ballet: Cinderella
