  • MargotMargot | DVD | (18/01/2010) from £12.55   |  Saving you £1.44 (11.47%)   |  RRP £13.99

    This is the story of how the most famous dancer that England has ever produced was deceived and betrayed by those closest to her; of how a little girl called Peggy Hookham brought up in Shanghai told her mother she would one day become the greatest dancer in the world; and of how in spite of being almost unable to walk she was still performing when she was 67. It is a story of courage and tenacity of unbelievable devotion to her art and to those whom she loved who in the end left her penniless and alone even to the extent that she was buried at first in a pauper's grave. It is the stuff of fiction - except that it is true.

    Perrault's timeless fairy tale of the mistreated waif turned princess has inspired a number of composers and choreographers since its first incarnation as a major ballet by Petipa in 1893. But none has gained the popularity of the version set by Frederick Aston for Sadler's Wells Royal ballet in 1948. It was the first full-length ballet devised by a British choreographer.Though the role of Cinderella was danced by Moira Shearer at the premier it soon became a signature piece for Margot Fonteyn and a mainstay of the company's repertoire. In addition to providing the choreography Ashton also gave himself a plum role as one of the Ugly Sisters and appears on this video in tandem with Kenneth MacMillan another celebrated British choreographer en travesti.
