An unprecedented look into the life of the complex young man who made ballet go viral.
Blessed with astonishing power and poise, Sergei Polunin took the dance world by storm and became the Royal Ballet’s youngest ever principal. But at the peak of his success, aged 25, he walked away, driven to the brink of self-destruction by stardom.
Urban rebel, iconoclast, airborne angel, Sergei is transforming the shape of ballet as we know it. But virtuosity comes with a high price. How can you be free to be yourself when you are ballet’s ‘hottest property’?
★★★★ "Its real richness lies in its frank and painful account of just what it took for him to reach the top" - Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent
★★★★ "Even the most seasoned ballet fan will likely sit up and wonder: how the hell did he do that?" - Tara Brady, The Irish Times
