The passionate ballet Marguerite and Armand was created in 1963 by Sir Frederick Ashton specifically for Rudolf Nureyev and Dame Margot Fonteyn. It is danced to Liszt’s Piano Sonata in B Minor and based on Alexander Dumas’ novel La Dame aux Camelias. Choreographed specifically for Nureyev and Fonteyn, it was first performed by the Royal Ballet at Covent Garden on 12 March 1963. Over the years the couple danced the ballet many times; about 40 times at Covent Garden, then at La Scala in Milan, at the Paris Opera in 1966, in South and North America in 1975 and in London for the last time in 1977. Beaton’s main inspiration for the costumes was the 1937 film Camille, staring Greta Garbo.
