Don Quixote. Act I excerpts (ca. 2 min., col.) / choreography after Marius Petipa. Nureyev dances the principal male role of Basilio, which he first danced at the Kirov during the 1959-1960 season.
The sleeping beauty. Act II excerpts (ca. 1 1/2 min., col.) / choreography, Konstantin Sergeev after Marius Petipa). Nureyev, as Prince Désiré, dances among the courtiers and performs a variation; there are brief glimpses of him with the Lilac Fairy and Princess Aurora in the ensuing vision scene. Nureyev first danced this role with the Kirov during the 1960-1961 season.

[Rudolf Nureyev offstage and on] (ca. 6 min., b&w) / this segment begins with footage of Nureyev in his dressing room, removing his makeup and getting dressed. After he goes outdoors, the film takes on an increasingly disjointed, dreamlike quality, juxtaposing close-ups of faces (Nureyev's and others) with views of a train and its tracks, a snowy wooded landscape, brief glimpses of Nureyev onstage, and a sequence from Swan lake, Act II, recorded at high speed.
