Alicia Markova signs a first day cover honoring United Nations Human Rights Day December 10, 1956.
First Day Cover signed: "Alicia Markova". 6½x3½. FDC honoring United Nations Human Rights Day Dec. 10th 1956, 3-cent stamp affixed, postmarked United Nations, New York, December 10, 1956, FIRST DAY OF ISSUE. English prima ballerina Dame Alicia Markova (1910-2004), born Lilian Alice Marks, joined Sergei Diaghilev's Ballets Russes in Monte Carlo at the age of 14. It was Diaghilev who "Russified" her name, as there was a prejudice at the time that the best ballerinas were Russian. Best remembered for Giselle (filmed in 1952), The Dying Swan and Les Sylphides, Markova, who was billed as "The Miniature Pavlova", thrilled audiences around the world. She helped to found the Ballet Club, the Vic Wells Ballet and the Markova-Dolin Ballet in Britain, and Markova would later form her own company, Festival Ballet (now English National Ballet) in 1950. After retiring from dancing in 1963 after surgery, Markova became a teacher and traveled worldwide to direct ballet companies. Fine condition.
