Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - August 9, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa argot Fonteyn Quietly TipToeing off London Stage By Kobert Turkman LONDON (AP) Marmot Fonteyn is quietly tip-toring off (ho stage on which she danced so exquisitely for near ly 40 years and on which she won acclaim as Britain’s greatest ballerina For the first time, she has not accepted any dales for the coming fall-winter season with the Royal Ballet at London’s Royal Opera House, Covent (iarden. Fonteyn is 55, an age well beyond the farewell performance of most ballerinas Critics and ballet lovers agree sin* has lost some of her technical brilliance, but many insist that she still defies both age with her beauty and gravity with her feet. And, she has lost none of her popularity with her adoring London public "Sin' is still the greatest !>ox office draw wa have,” says John Toolev, general administrator of the Royal Opera House Is sin* actually retiring? On that subject, as always, Dame Margot is noncom rnittal She has often said that sin* would never announce her retirement, formally — merely slip away Although London probably has seen the last of Fonteyn, she is scheduled to perform elsewhere during the coming months, notably with the Scottish Ballet Company and abroad with the newly formed New London Ballet Company Says Covent (Iarden admin is! rater Toolev I have pled with her to say yes and dance with us (at the Royal Opera House) but she says she cannot make up her mind She can dance anything she likes and with whomever she pleases, but still she won t say yes ” Ton Icy believes she is ret ii mg from London because she is terrified that she will no longer lie able to meet what he describes as her own ’ n diculously high standards Sensitive lo Criticism "She is desperately sensitive to criticism.” he says It is perhaps for that reason that she now appears to be acepting dates for places she has not been se'-n before Fonteyn was last see. ’I tin1 Royal Opera House on July 15 She danced in a gala performance to mark the retirement of the Karl of Drogheda after Ifi years as chairman of the board at Covent Garden Her partner that night was Rudolf Nureyev and the amli once sensed it might be her last performance1 in the city where she danced her first "Swan Lake” in 1935 The audience gave her a standing ovation that lasted almost as long as her 15-min-ute pas de deux with Nureyev . Nureyev has been her principal partner since he defected from Leningrad's Kirov Ballot in Cans in HOH Before that — she made her solo debut in 1934 at the age of 15 — her partners were first Robert Helpmann, and later Michael Somes Nureyev Partnership Her remarkable partnership with Nureyev — 20 years younger than she is — reached a high point of critical acclaim in the I9WK when she danced as a teenage Juliet to Nureyev s Romeo in Kenneth MacMillan’s Royal Ballet production of the Prokofiev ballet. For her services to ballet, Fonteyn has been showered with a seemingly endless stream of honors Perhaps most notable were the DBK — Dame of the British Empire — and the title few dancers achieve — prima ballerina assoluta Court Throws Gut Carson Damage Suit ST LOLIS (LIM) - His name and image, said entertainer Johnny (’arson iii a lawsuit, are "his valuable creation, which is protected from wrongful use by others." Not so in Nebraska, Carson's home state, said the LLS. court of appeals for the eighth circuit. The court threw out a suit (’arson filed against a Lincoln, Neb., travel agency for $125,-(HNI in damages for using his name without his consent. The appeals court agreed with a lower court's ruling that Nebraska was one of four states which "has expressly refused to recognize a right of privacy.” Travel Lnlimited, Inc., used (’arson s picture on brochures and advertisements to publicize a tour while ( arson was in Las Vegas.
