Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev with the soloists and the corps de ballet from the London Royal Ballet.

Recorded on stage at Covent Garden, without an audience. Invaluable record showing Nureyev in two, completely opposing aspects of his art: Le Corsaire, Pas de Deux which was his signature throughout his career, and the role of the romantic poet in the Sylphides. Passion and lyricism. It is also possible to see a magnificent demonstration of style with Fonteyn and David Blair in the third act of Sleeping Beauty.
