The Eldorado was a famed destination in Berlin for lesbians, homosexual men, transvestites of both sexes, and tourists during the 1920’s and 30’s. As soon as the Nazis came to power, gay bars and clubs like the Eldorado were closed down. The “El Dorado” was situated at 29, Lutherstraße. It had a lavish floor show. It was closed down in about 1932.

NIJINSKY & NUREYEV

nureyevnijinsky

Vaslav Nijinsky (1889-1950)
Rudolf Nureyev (1938-1993)

“Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune”, known in English as “Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun”, is a symphonic poem for orchestra by Claude Debussy (1862-1918) approximately 10 minutes in duration. It was first performed in Paris on December 22, 1894, conducted by Gustave Doret.
Debussy’s work later provided the basis for the ballet “Afternoon of a Faun” choreographed by Vaslav Nijinsky.

 

“It was well known that Madame Danilova, the famous teacher and former ballerina with the Ballet Russe, had a phrase that she would always repeat whenever anyone gushed to her about the performance of a danseur. The phrase was, “Yes, but I saw Nijinsky.” So one night, Madame came to see the Nijinsky program, the homage to the Ballet Russe with Nureyev and the Joffrey Ballet, the company you see here: L’apresmidi, Petrouchka, and Spectre de la Rose. Afterward, she went backstage where she was received with utmost respect by Nureyev. “Rudolf,” she said, “you know what I always say.” He answered with humility, “Yes, Madame. I do.” And she said, “This time, I do not say it.” That’s about the highest praise I can imagine for one of the two greatest dancers of the 20th century, both gone way too soon.?” – Lin Hiril (Google +)
