Nureyev returns in documentary

Ten years after his death, Rudolf Nureyev, considered the greatest male ballet dancer of the 20th century, will reappear to Japanese fans in a 92-minute color documentary.

"I Am a Dancer," a 1972 British film now subtitled in Japanese, captures Nureyev dancing in various styles from classical to contemporary. It also features interviews with Nureyev, as well as rehearsals, performances and some of his dance partners.

The film will be shown at 11 a.m., 1:30 and 4 p.m. on Dec. 23 at Asahi Seimei Hall, a 3-minute walk from the west exit of JR Shinjuku Station.

Advance tickets are 1,500 yen for adults and children, with a limited number of tickets being sold at the door for 1,800 yen. A group of 10 or more people can get advance tickets for 1,200 yen each. Preschoolers are not allowed.

For advance tickets, call (047) 389-9077 or fax (047) 389-9067 and provide name, address, telephone number, and tickets and show times desired (along with alternate times).

There are 500 tickets per showing available for advance sale; applicants will receive a postal transfer form and the tickets will be sent after the money is deposited.
