Did You Know?
Isn't it strange that something you've never really wanted to do turns out to be the very thing that's given you a name and identity?...The Red Shoes
(1948) ruined my career in the ballet. They (her peers) never trusted me again.
Performed in Frederick Ashton
's masterpiece "Symphonic Variations", her red hair providing vibrant contrast to blonde ballerina Pamela May
and brunette Margot Fonteyn
. In 1948, Shearer replaced an ailing Fonteyn in "Cinderella". Many prefer her version to that of Fonteyn's.
