Margot Fonteyn Autobiography
Dame Margot Fonteyn is famous not only for her superb artistry but also for her warmth and simplicity – shining qualities that illuminate her autobiography and make it instantly accessible to her millions of admirers. The story she has to tell is exciting and exotic. She describes her eventful childhood spent largely in China, her speedy emergence as a potential star of the Vic-Wells ballet, her determination to fulfil the hopes of the great Ninette de Valois, and her triumphs on stages all over the world.
There are fascinating accounts of her three great partnerships – with the theatrically flamboyant Robert Helpmann, the handsome Michael Somes, and the charismatic Rudolf Nureyev – as well as entertaining anecdotes of dance and dancers from every period of her long and glorious career.
