Programme for Alicia Markova and Anton Dolin showcase Featured Ballet Print

Programme for Alicia Markova and Anton Dolin showcase

The cover of the programme for a Alicia Markova and Anton Dolin Gala Performance of Ballet at the Granada, Woolwich, London. In 1950, Markova and Dolin became the co-founders of the Festival Ballet, a company formed to celebrate the imminent Festival of Britain and backed by the Polish businessman Julian Brunsweg. Dolin was to be the company's first Artistic Director, with Markova as Prima Ballerina. The company was formed to tour ballets to audiences that would otherwise be unable to experience ballet, and went on to tour extensively to less conventional venues both in the United Kingdom and internationally. It also established a number of educational programmes designed to make ballet accessible to new audiences. Date: 1950
