This historic program immortalizes a gala evening of classical ballet featuring the legendary team of Rudolf Nureyev and Margot Fonteyn. An Evening With the Royal Ballet has been critically acclaimed as a chance to view the pinnacle of ballet achievement.
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.
