When Ninette de Valois saw Frederick Ashton's first ballet, in 1926, she immediately congratu-lated his teacher, Marie Rambert, on having discovered ' a real choreographer Fifty-three years later, celebrating his 75th birthday, that is what Sir Frederick remains.
Frederick Ashton has created more than 50 major ballets for the Royal Ballet, and the companies from which it grew. His choreography has become the basis ot the English style of dancing which is epitomised by La fille mat gardée, one of his masterpieces. His achievement entitles him to stand with Bournonville, Petipa and Fokine, as one of the creators of classical ballet as we know it now. In this film, for the first time, he talks at length about his early life. and struggles, the creative influences on his work, his relationship with Margot Fonteyn, and the trauma of nerves and diffidence which afflicts him when he creates a new ballet.
In addition, he is seen dancing in Foyer de Danse (1932) and Cinderella, while Margot Fonteyn, Nadia Nerina, Merle Park, David Blair, Michael Coleman, Stanley Holden and many others are seen in excerpts from his works.
Finally, the programme offers a rare opportunity to Me Mr Frederick in the rehearsal room, perfecting and modifying the work of young dancers who come fresh to his ballets.
