HASH(0x89a7d7d4) out of 5 stars Andromeda 9 Feb. 2006
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Once again it is refreshing to see such videos that are important historical accounts of ballet dancers. Margot Fonteyn, the lady of the dance world, and Nureyev, a maverick, formed such a pair and complemented each other so well and this is clear from watching this footage. Both gained much from the partnership, Fonteyn becoming more bold and passionate and Nureyev absorbing all of her proper schooling. The dancing was wonderful but more importantly, the descriptions of how they worked together to become a dance couple of the highest attainable quality make this a worthwhile addition to any dance library.

HASH(0x89a7dab0) out of 5 stars Fascinating and riveting! 13 July 2008
By Lorraine P. Zigman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
What a treasure! A fascinating history of the incredible dancing careers of two of the biggest stars in the world of ballet. Fonteyn and Nureyev were extraordinary in their dynamic dancing, with fire, energy and virility coming through on the part of Nureyev. I for one am very glad that Nureyev defected from Russia while on tour in France. Otherwise, many of us would never have the opportunity to witness and enjoy his incredible dancing abilities. His grace, presentation and leaps leave me breathless and in awe. The commentaries by people from the world of ballet are very interesting and informative. A wonderful addition to anyone's music library, not just for the beauty of the ballet, but for the history of their work together in a ballet partnership to be long remembered.

HASH(0x89a7da74) out of 5 stars Docu-bio of Fonteyn & Nureyev 23 Mar. 2012
By Jancal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This documentary shows selective performance clips of the two famous dancers, as well as a few interviews (mostly of Nureyev), news stories wherein they made headlines, and commentary by people who knew them and highly praised them. The most interesting ballet excerpts for me were "Marguerite & Armand" which I saw them dance at the Met in NY in the 1970s, and which renewed a beautiful memory of their tremendous acting abilities in those roles; and "Romeo & Juliet" which also emphasized their romantic partnership to full advantage. "Birthday Offering" is briefly shown, both in amusing rehearsal with choreographer Frederick Ashton and after the performance (Antoinette Sibley and Anthony Dowell, the second famous Royal Ballet partnership of the 70s, are briefly seen on the receiving line next to them), also "Le Corsaire" which was such a great showcase for Nureyev's leaps and bounds, and the ethereal "Les Sylphides." An ambitious documentary with limited scope, left you wanting more though it ran 90 minutes.

That overworked word "magical", seems to be the only appropriate one.
Their artistry and chemistry was mesmerizing. I understand that an updated, enhanced edition was made and I would love to have it, if available.

HASH(0x89a7ddc8) out of 5 stars NUREYEV and FONTEYN 27 Mar. 2011
By aliceDewonder - Published on Amazon.com

If you didn't live it you will in this DVD. "Electric" was the only descriptor one can implement to accurately define this partnership. Often I have shared this DVD with yet to be ballet artists that instantly are captivated with the completion of an electric circuit found with the novice Nureyev and the older established prima ballerina Fonteyn. Through the support of their personal photographer, Keith Money, the viewer is permitted some discrete inside information that adds reality to their true characters. Within this recording is a rare piece of filmed "Camilla" as well as their arrests in the California. True hearts of the sixties was the magic found between this extraordinary dance couple.
Within any partnership one leads while the other follows. Within a workable partnership the leader alters to follower when the occasion arises for no one is consistently correct. Please take the time to discover such partnerships in novel form. As always it is best to go in order:
Hear the Calliope: A sentimental journey on the Earth Ride
Legacy: Let the games begin (Volume 2)
Reason Void of Reason: Spirituality Honeymoon Style (Volume 3)
BREATHE: Noumenon (Volume 4)
