Rudolf Nureyev's Don Quixote

2hrs 8mins

Filmed in 1973 in a 40° airport hangar over the course of 25 days, Rudolf Nureyev and Sir Robert Helpmann, along with The Australian Ballet, created Don Quixote the film, or The Impossible Dream.

With cinematography by Geoffrey Unsworth (Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey and Bob Fosse's Cabaret), the film has been internationally hailed as the best dance film ever made! Nureyev, regarded as the greatest male ballet dancer of all time, was at the peak of his career when this film was shot.

In celebration of the film's 50th anniversary, for the first time ever, cinema audiences around the world will be able to enjoy the re-mastered, restored, and re-orchestrated film.
