Image <P><B>Alfred Rodrigues</B><BR>From The Times<BR>Tall and imposing dancer who became a choreographer fond of injecting much theatre into ballet<P><BR>Alfred Rodrigues’s breakthrough as a choreographer came from Margot Fonteyn who, impressed by a number about the Roaring Twenties which he made for a charity ball, commissioned Ile des Sirènes from him for a concert tour she undertook in 1950 with Robert Helpmann. The two stars played a sailor and an unexpectedly fierce water-nymph, and the work was well enough liked for it to be taken later into the programmes of the Sadler’s Wells Theatre Ballet. <BR>That company then commissioned the most successful of Rodrigues’s early works: the melodramatic Blood Wedding, after Lorca’s play, made in collaboration with the composer Denis ApIvor and the designer Isabel Lambert. <P><A HREF="http://www.thetimes.co.uk/printFriendly/0,,1-45-243450,00.html" TARGET=_blank><B>click for more</B></A><BR>
