Footnotes

  • This ballet was created by Sir Robert Helpmann for The Australian Ballet. It had its world premiere in Melbourne in November 1975. Dame Margot Fonteyn was a guest dancer in the rôle of Hanna and continued when the company brought the production to England for the British premiere at the London Palladium. The vendor, then a child ballet dancer, met Dame Margot backstage and was given the shoe as a memento by the ballerina.
