The first major biography for forty years tells the tragic story of ballet's great revolutionary, Nijinsky. 'He achieves the miraculous,' the sculptor Auguste Rodin wrote of Vaslav Nijinsky. 'He embodies all the beauty of classical frescoes and statues'. Like so many since, Rodin recognised that in "Nijinsky" classical ballet had one of the greatest and most original artists of the twentieth century, in any genre. And his life is the stuff of legends: a story of great beauty and great tragedy. Immersed in the world of dance from his childhood, he found his natural home in the Imperial Theatre and the Ballets Russe, and a powerful sponsor in Sergei Diaghilev - until a dramatic and public failure ended his career and set him on a route to madness. As a dancer, he was acclaimed as godlike for his extraordinary grace and elevation, but the opening of Stravinsky's "The Rite of Spring" saw furious brawls between admirers of his radically unballetic choreography and horrified traditionalists. Though 2013 marks the Rite's centenary, "Nijinsky's" story has lost none of its power to shock, fascinate and move. Adored and reviled in his lifetime, his phenomenal talent was shadowed by schizophrenia and an intense but destructive relationship with his lover, Diaghilev. 'I am alive' he wrote in his diary, 'and so I suffer'. In the first biography for forty years, Lucy Moore examines a career defined by two forces - inspired performance and an equally headline-grabbing talent for controversy.
