adeline genee

Recommended Posts

I was trying to find photos of Empire Theater ballets and found a postcard from 1912 online of Adeline Genee as Camargo after she had left the Empire Theater. It's ambiguous about what theater she was performing in at that time but it seems to imply that she was at a British theater. Coud this possibly have been a staging of the old Petipa ballet?

I detect a slight note of disappointment. Why? Dame Adeline must really have been something, both as a person and as a dancer.

She was born in Denmark in 1878, she toured the world, became president of what is now the Royal Academy of Dancing, established the Adeline Genee Gold Medal, became a Dame of the British Empire. Not bad going for a girl born in the Danish countryside in those days. Now she has a theater named after her. She is also supposed to have been a splendid dancer. :)
