The great Alicia Markova talks with Dominique Delouche about her life and her roles with the Ballets Russes under Serge Diaghilev. Between 1925 and 1928, Karsavina, Pavlova, Sergueev, Egorova, Fokine and Spessivtseva, all brilliant dancers with the Ballets Russes, left a lasting mark on the young British ballerina's artistic career. After the death of the famous Russian impresario in 1929, Alicia Markova returned to England, where she worked alongside the famous choreographer Frederick Ashton, and in 1950 founded what was to become the English National Ballet. In the company of the Stars and Dancers of the Paris Opera, Alicia Markova delivers her memoirs, those of an exceptional dancer who worked with the greatest names in dance throughout the 20th century.
