Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Prima ballerinas Nadia Nerina and Margot Fonteyn showcase three of the ballet world's most popular and enduring works here. Les Sylphides uses the music of Chopin to create a short 'romantic reverie' and demands technical brilliance from its dancers. In this performance of Coppelia, the first of four of producer Margaret Dale's adaptations for the BBC, Nerina's comedic skills are in abundance. The final film features arguably ballet's greatest partnership, Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev. This extract from the 1962 Giselle is a rare sample of one their earliest collaborations.
