I am deeply saddened by the passing of this great artist. I'm also very sorry that I had so few opportunities to see her perform, because judging by what I did see, she was a Romantic ballerina nonpareil. Her line, her lightness and her jump were absolutely astonishing. My wretched old pirate of the Evdokimova/Schaufuss/Larsen La Sylphide is one of the ballet films I prize most.

May she rest in peace.

In today’s Guardian, Mary Clarke doyenne of London ballet critics, has given us a beautifully sensitive obituary for Evie that conjures up her qualities so well and quietly puts her in the context of ballet history.

Thank you so much for letting us know. As you say, it's an extraordinary piece.

Mary Clarke's tribute was a beautiful one, and unusual for much dance writing now, for she establishes the context of Evdokimova's dance career and accomplishments.
