Margot Fonteyn - Tony Palmer's Margot Fonteyn
This is my description text 1. It can support html.

This is the story of how the most famous dancer that England has ever produced was deceived and betrayed by those closest to her; of how a little girl called Peggy Hookham, brought up in Shanghai, told her mother she would one day become the greatest dancer in the world; and of how, in spite of being almost unable to walk, she was still performing when she was 67. It is a story of courage and tenacity, of unbelievable devotion – to her art and to those whom she loved who, in the end, left her penniless and alone, even to the extent that she was buried at first in a pauper’s grave.

It is the stuff of fiction – except that it is true. Among the ballets featured are: Romeo & Juliet, Swan Lake, Giselle, The Sleeping Beauty, Marguerite & Armand, & The Nutcracker’with Rudolf Nureyev,  Frederick Ashton, Robert Helpmann, Ninette de Valois, Roland Petit, Monica Mason, Lynn Seymour, Antoinette Sibley, Anthony Dowell & Beryl Grey.
