The glamorous, turbulent life of Britain's international ballet superstar
At age 40, Dame Margot Fonteyn (Anne-Marie Duff - The Virgin Queen, Shameless) was one of the greatest ballerinas of the 20th Century. At her creative peak, she was a woman torn between her loyalties to the Royal Ballet and her marriage to unfaithful Panamanian diplomat, Roberto de Arias (Con O'Neill - Criminal Justice). Under mounting pressure to retire, Margot's unexpected pairing with young Russian émigré Rudolph Nureyev (Michiel Huisman - The Young Victoria) caused a global sensation and created one of the most enduring and stunning ballet partnerships of all time. Also starring Lindsay Duncan (Alice in Wonderland), Derek Jacobi (Endgame) and Penelope Wilton (Pride & Prejudice), Margot is a timeless tale of love, performance, passion and self-sacrifice.

The best part of this pair of DVD's is the bonus disk featuring Fonteyn in segments from three ballets. My favorite is Ondine. For a terrific review of the ballets on the bonus disk, I recommend Ivy Lin's review. In fact, read all her ballet DVD reviews, you can learn a lot from them and be guided to some other DVD's you might like to add to your collection. Expert information.
