Bold, ardent, passionate. This handsome professional was the most flamboyant XX century dancer. He made a revolutionary step in the history of male dancers. His incredible plasticity and powerful dynamics made an unforgettable impression. His striking agility combined with flexibility could cater even to the most picky audience.
Together with Margot Fonteyn, he broke the record for curtain calls which still remains in the Guinness Book of World Records. In 1964, after their “Swan Lake” at the Vienna State Opera they received more than 80 curtain calls!
