Featuring recordings from 1963 performances of Margot Fonteyn and Rudolph Nureyev - one of the greatest dancing partnerships of all time, this documentary is a stunning showcase of an internationally admired and loved company and its world-renowned dancers. The Royal Ballet's foundations were built on the energy and talents of two remarkable women - Ninette de Valois, formerly a ballerina with Diaghilev's Ballets Russes, and Lilian Baylis, who was managing the Royal Victoria Hall in London, now known as 'the Old Vic'. Determined to maintain the English style and character of their repertoire, Dame Ninette collaborated with a young choreographer, Frederick Ashton and an equally young and brilliant musician, Constant Lambert, to form a triumvirate destined to create a solid base for the Company's long-term future. In October 1956, a Royal Charter created 'The Royal Ballet' as a body corporate with perpetual succession.
