CM: This historical photograph featuring Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev was taken by Jannis Maillis at Herodes Atticus Odeon in Athens. The title of the performance was "Ballet Nights: Margot Fonteyn & Rudolf Nureyev", and premiered on 9 August 1963. According to the photographer's wife, Jannis Maillis was photographing the legendary dance couple throughout their rehearsal. Having stayed with Fonteyn and Nureyef till the morning hours, he took them to see the sunrise at the seaside. Mrs Anna Maillis recalls her husband calling her on the phone to have her guess who was sitting at the place normally reserved for her in their car.
