Nureyev and Fonteyn - without question the most convincing on stage relationship of all time. Sometimes by chance paths cross, talent combines and magic happens. This is the story of this unlikely pairing. Rudolf Nureyev - a 20 year old Russian exile and Margot Fonteyn - the already renowned English prima ballerina. Neither age difference nor culture restrained their pure charisma when dancing together. 
 
I love the contrast of Fonteyn's sartorial elegance against Nureyev's more bohemian baroque style. 
 
Hope you enjoy the video.
