Marguerite and Armand a beautiful narrative ballet by Frederick Ashton that was created for Margot Fonteyn and Nureyev followed. It was based on Alexander Dumas’ The Lady of the Camellias and set to music by Franz Liszt. Tamara Rojo and Sergei Polunin gave a beautiful emotional performance.
Finally, Requiem by Kenneth MacMillan was breathtaking and solemn as it is a tribute to his friend Choreographer and Director of the Stuttgart Ballet John Cranko who died tragically in 1973. It was an exquisite performance of one of MacMillan’s best ballets.
