Beautiful! Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nueryev as Maguerite and Armand in the then new one act ballet created by Frederick Ashton.The surprising thing was this -- the English ballerina was 43 years old and Neureyev was 24. Together on opening night they were sizzling, so much that they had 20 curtain calls. I changed the photo here because I learned something. A shiny black backdrop must be on a black matte paper to make a beautiful picture. P.s. The tiny one dot on the card is actually a part of whatever is holdng back Fonteyn's hair.
