Schon Magazine’s Margot Fonteyn feature follows the story of the highly revered ballerina. Titled ‘Margot Fonteyn & Rudolf Nureyev in Swan Lake Act 2,’ the short film displays the best of the late icon. Writer Scarlett Casciello-Rogers delves into the crux of Fonteyn’s love life in her coverage of the star, a topic that was almost as coveted as her live performances.

Fonteyn’s onstage appearances with European versions of the Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake and Romeo and Juliet were known to invigorate large audiences. Her personal offstage pursuits were similarly invigorating given her involvement with lovers Roberto Arias, a well respected Diplomat, and Rudolf Nureyev, a talented dancer. Fonteyn’s interchanges with these men were comparable in many respects to the situations she so accurately depicted in front of thousands, leading many to develop a near infatuation with all facets of the graceful beauty’s life.
