Customer Review

on 1 October 2013
I was wonderfully reminded just what a genius Sir Fred was/is . I am biaised mind you in having known Sir Fred when he was alive and in the1970s and onward . He was the most extraordinary man and one I would sit down with for a meal or whatever . My greatest memory was in the early 1970s when he along with Margot Fonteyn , Georgina Parkinson and David Wall were going to Brazil . I was working for the Brazilian Airline VARIG . We used to TWA VIP room for our illustrious clients and this group from The Royal Opera House were deemed as high ranking and representatives of Ballet in England . Sir Fred , , never one to ' hold-back ' on ceremony, picked up a large portion ... tin of Caviar and proceeded to eat the said Caviar with a gold spoon given to him by Queen Elizabeth the Queens Mother . Such a remarkable Man and Choreographer . His whims and fantasies showed themselves in his wonderful Ballets especially La Fille mal Garde.... in the Clog dance he danced along side the great Australian ballet dancer , creating a wonderful and prestigious act to follow . No-one could match their incredible mastery of his steps and nooone ( in my estimation ) could match his humour . Such romantisism . He nearly always had a sequence where dancing with ribbons was set . Pure excellence and sorely missed and possibly never matched save Kenneth McMillan .
