Five Russian men who changed ballet

Last Updated: 12:01am BST 14/07/2007

Ivan Vasiliev is just the latest in a long line of Russian 'superhero' dancers. As he makes his debut in London, we look back at some of his predecessors
# Ivan Vasiliev, the boy who can fly

Mikhail Baryshnikov
Magnetic: Mikhail Baryshnikov in 1993

Vaslav Nijinsky
Men rule, 1889-1950

Diaghilev's extraordinary star, a small, sturdy man of Polish blood, St Petersburg-trained. His astounding leaps evoked flight, and his unparalleled dramatic character could suggest an animal or bird one moment, a prince or sexually rampant slave the next. He made ballet a man's game for the first time. His ballets The Rite of Spring and L'Après-midi d'un faune revealed a prodigious modernist choreographer, but he succumbed to mental illness in his twenties.

Rudolf Nureyev
Ballet rocks, 1938-1993

Born on a train to a poor Siberian family, a late starter in ballet, the Kirov's exotic, rebellious rising star defected on his first Western tour in 1961, three days before his scheduled debut in London. His animal beauty and ambiguous sexual charisma recalled Nijinsky, and his unexpected rapport with the cool grande dame of England, Margot Fonteyn, rocked the world far outside ballet. He made ballet the new pop in the '60s, renewing classical ballet with effects felt to this day. Became Paris Opera Ballet's most brilliant director before dying of Aids.

Vladimir Vasiliev
Evolution of superman

Born 1940, Moscow-trained. Bolshoi principal at 19, uniting Soviet bravado and Russian refinement, the original Spartacus in Yuri Grigorovich's 1962 ballet. A muscular blond, he epitomised the Cold War Soviet ballet boom, defining a new invincible male icon, the Russian superhero, but his Western fame was undeservedly limited by his non-defection. Married effervescent ballerina Ekaterina Maximova, becoming a dazzling classical partnership. Later, less happily, Bolshoi director and choreographer.

Mikhail Baryshnikov
From old to new

Born 1948, Leningrad-trained. Kirov star at 21, and the man whose defection the Soviets most feared. Limited in roles by his 5ft 7in stature, highly intelligent and inquiring, he defected in Toronto in 1974, settling in the US and becoming a superstar, inspiring today's extraordinary American male generation. More aerial a dancer than Nureyev, he delivered pure Kirov classicism with a magnetic naturalness and humour. The first crossover dancer, when contemporary queen Twyla Tharp created ballets for him, he immersed himself (and his fortune) in regenerating modern dance.

Irek Mukhamedov
Hunk turned prince

Born 1960, Moscow-trained. Winning the 1981 Moscow competition while a star of Moscow's second company, he joined the Bolshoi as principal and succeeded Vasiliev as new-era Spartacus. After a decade as Bolshoi superhero, he came to London's Royal Ballet in 1990, remaking himself as a dramatic actor in Kenneth MacMillan's ballets, and developing an artistic side the Bolshoi had neglected, a superlative career as a classical prince.

Tự dưng mình lại đâm ra nghĩ vẩn vơ. Đúng là phục mọi người về các loại top - nào là 20 giọng soprano vĩ đại nhất, rồi thì top 20 tenor vĩ đại nhất của BBC. Bây giờ thì lại thấy cái danh sách này ...

Tuy nhiên Nina cứ nghĩ là ... 5 người thay đổi ballet nhiều nhất thì dù sao cũng là các biên đạo :)

Còn nếu là 5 diễn viên ballet thì Vaslav Nijinsky đúng là đáng dẫn đầu danh sách thật. Nhưng mà Nuriev thì Nina không thích - cứ có cảm giác là anh này được PR nhiều quá, cầu cho hương hồn anh ý được bình an. Và nếu so với Vladimir Vasiliev thì Nina lại thích Maris Liepa hơn, trong vở Spatak thì vai Crassus của Liepa cũng rất sống động...

Và cuối cùng - hơi tiếc cho các nghệ sĩ ballet hiện đại, lại vẫn chả có anh nào lọt vào danh sách, dẫu là nó rất chủ quan ...
