Great performances

This film was made when Margot Fonteyn was at her best in The Royal Ballet. The colour is good and the filming is done from various angles and locations so it is not just a fixed viewpoint. The running time of 2 hours is reasonable generous. The extracts from Swan Lake and Firebird are excellent. The lesser known Ondine is complete and is quite adventurous in technique and costume. Good value and well worth owning.
