The Maude Lloyd and Wallace Potts Film Archive

Opening of a new archive center at Rambert

Archives Nureyev - Rambert

The Rudolf Nureyev Foundation is delighted to have contributed to Rambert’s new headquarters on the South Bank by funding its Maude Lloyd and Wallace Potts Archive. This has been named in honour of Maude Lloyd, a leading dancer in the early days of Rambert and subsequently a close friend of Rudolf Nureyev, and Wallace Potts, his close friend and archivist. The Foundation is grateful to Rambert for permitting it to house some titles from their film collection in this Archive.

A selection has been made to provide private viewing access to a number of full length ballets featuring Rudolf Nureyev. These include his performances in Agon”, “Apollo”, “Bayadere”, “Giselle”, “Le Spectre de la Rose”, “Manfred”, “Nutcracker”, “Paradise Lost”. “Romeo and Juliet”, “Sleeping Beauty”, “Songs of a Wayfarer”, “Swan Lake” “The Tempest”, “Tristan” “Two Brothers” and “Washington Square”. There are also several documentaries, television appearances and some home movie footage.

The footage will be accessible on the same basis as the main Rudolf Nureyev Foundation collection housed in the New York Public Library. This is for private study only on a one to one basis.
