Latest Issue

When Rudolf Nureyev defected from Soviet Russia in 1961, he arrived in the west with a meteor’s dazzle. The White Crow, a major new film, portrays his heart-stopping defection – we have an exclusive interview with director Ralph Fiennes and the dancer Oleg Ivenko, who plays Nureyev.

Another dance star making a difference is  Cuban sensation Carlos Acosta, who recently received the RAD’s prestigious QEII Award and has just become Director of Birmingham Royal Ballet. We meet him, and also visit Acosta’s Havana. We hear from iconic ballerinas Misty Copeland and Darcey Bussell, and from Gerard Charles, the RAD’s new Artistic Director. And we explore creativity on stage – from the craft of acting to the inspiration of a ballet muse.

A genius playlist from Okwui Okpokwasili, who last year won a MacArthur ‘Genius’ Fellowship. Read more about her choices in the latest issue.
