George de la Pena, gives a convincing portrayal as Nijinsky, but honours must go to Alan Bates as Diaghilev who is coolly superb and Alan Badel as the mischievous Baron de Gunzburg serving up some deliciously bitchy punch lines. A must for balletomanes and for those who like true stories with a strong cast in opulent settings. 
