I already had a video copy of this wonderful compilation. One I had recorded
from a BBC TV program so I was aware of the excellence of its content. This is
definately a recording to keep and introduce to others. Rudolph and Margo are
the finest example of a "Perfect Partnership" of ballet excellence there has
ever been and ever will be. One is priviledged to be able to see the finest ballet
over and over again. I will keep the video tape and the DVD for as long as I live.
I have already received so much pleasure from them. It is all there for all to
appreciate and enjoy.

As an owner of the original version, I have longed to own this enhanced version for quite some time. But, as I am a resident of the U.S., my DVD player did not accommodate the European format.
I now have an all-region DVD player and am thrilled with this production showing video clips of "Giselle", "Hamlet", and that "Ed Sullivan-Swan Lake" clip. These two were really a dazzling pair and I would be grateful to be able to see the full 2nd act of "Giselle" or anything else that exists of their performances. If you know nothing about them, this DVD will inform and entertain. Any Fonteyn/Nureyev fan ( and there are tons of us in U.S.) would be happy to have this in their collection.

This remarkable DVD contains wonderful recordings of rare performances as well as interesting interviews which - although avoiding the more problematic areas of the star's lives - are often fascinating. Highly recommended - especially as an accompaniment to such biographies as Julie Kavanagh's monumental work on Nureyev or the Fonteyn biography. Yes a picture can be worth 1000 words....and this DVD certainly achieves that.

faultless performances on one dvd - they were feted as much as the beatles in the 60's and to have this compilation on one dvd is great esp Marguerite and Armand

This documentary is very well put together giving a concise history of their time as dancing partners. The ballet sequences are PURE MAGIC showing how they were both inspired by the other. For me, those that were most emotional were films from the ballets Marguerite and Armand and Romeo and Juliet. I shall play these many times over as they have the power to bring tears to my eyes.

It was a fantastic film. I really enjoyed it. The portrayal of Fonteyn and Nureyev by the Actors was absolutely wonderful. I learned a lot about Margot Fonteyn's life behind the ballet, and never realised she was with who she was with. It was riveting. I would definitely recommend this film to anyone interested in the Ballet. Wonderful.!

I saw Nureyev in London a few times & it was an amazing experience. Unfortunately I never saw him dance with Fonteyn so this DVD allowed me to see how dynamic the partnership was. Thank you

OMG! This is FABULOUS! I will, forever, regret, seeing Nereyev's last performance in Edinburgh some years ago. Absolutely wonderful Dancer. XXXX

I was disappointed in that there was, in my opinion, too much talk & not enough dance. I bought the DVD as for some time I have, unsuccessfully, searched for a DVD of Margeurite & Armand & from one of your reviewers comments I thought I had found it but I must still go on searching as only extracts were shown.
