Zustand: Near Fine.
Buchbeschreibung New York G. P. Putnam's & Sons, 1975. Folded paper programme for a Royal Ballet performance of Swan Lake at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. Stratford-Upon- Avon starring the iconic couple of the Ballet world, Margot Fonteyn (Arias) and Rudolf Nureyev, signed by both on the front page, original ticket stubs attached to top left-hand corner, 7 1/2 x 10 inches (190 x 255 mm), mounted for framing 12 1/2 x 15 inches (320 x 385 mm) , [together with] a loose copy of the same programmed for reference purposes. In 1961, Nureyev was invited to make his London debut at the annual gala organised by Margot Fonteyn for the Royal Academy of Dancing. The gala led the Royal Ballet to invite him to dance Giselle with Fonteyn the next season and that was the catalyst of the Fonteyn/Nureyev partnership. Both of them danced with many other partners who almost always looked better in consequence but they were most proud of what they achieved together. He at 23 gave her at 42 a new burst of energy and understanding; she inspired him and helped him settle down. Each learned a lot from the other and danced at their very best together. Nureyev greatly wanted to dance with Fonteyn in Leningrad and show what they achieved (unfortunately by the time he was allowed to dance there she had retired and he was far past his best). His explanation of their extraordinary success was "It's not her, it's not me, it's the sameness of the goal". They remained lifelong close friends. Artikel-Nr. 94939
