Lovely interview in the Telegraph.<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Dame Alicia Markova tells the story of her life in the thrilled, confiding tones of someone revealing the best-ever fairy tale. It's the story of how shy, skinny little Lillian Alicia Marks from Finsbury Park grew up to be a world-famous ballerina.<P>Dame Alicia will be 92 next December but she can recall every terrifying detail of that fateful Harley Street appointment: "I still remember him. Dr Colman . . . He said, 'Have you ever been to the ballet?' and then he suggested lessons and I thought, 'Ballet? Pavlova? Who's that?' Then I heard him say to my mother very quietly, 'If our experiment doesn't work she will be in leg irons and a wheelchair for the rest of her life' and I thought, 'Not if I can help it.' "<P><HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://www.telegraph.co.uk/arts/main.jhtml?xml=/arts/2002/06/26/btmark26.xml&sSheet=/arts/2002/06/29/ixstageleft.html" TARGET=_blank> <B> MORE </B> </A>
