Moreover, since October 2013, the CNCS opened a new permanent space dedicated to the Nureyev collection. 20 years after the dancer’s death, and thanks to a large donation by the Rudolf Nureyev Foundation, the CNCS has set up a place of memory. Through paintings, prints, furniture, musical instruments, sculptures, clothing, accessories and stage costumes, the new exhibition welcomes visitors to discover the intimacy and work of the Russian dancer.
