As The Sleeping Beauty is currently being performed at the Royal Opera House, it seems apt to reflect on the RB's quintessential British principal ballerinas, past and present. Here Rosemarie Gerhard talks about Margot Fonteyn, Lauren Cutbertson, Yasmine Naghdi and Francesca Hayward.

Fonteyn’s style of dancing was, and has continued to be, perceived as the essence of the English style, with her clean, unexaggerated lines, and with her musicality and focus on balance, poise and harmony rather than on a show of virtuosity.
