Mireille Bourgeois


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of this dancer? She is featured in the Birmingham Royal Ballet's programme in photos of Symphony in Three Movements (with no date, but assumed several years ago with a young-looking Joseph Cipolla). I was intrigued because I was not familiar with her name at all. In the photos she looks like a lovely, vivacious dancer.

On the internet I can find references to her in a 1978 filmed version of Roland Petit's Cyrano (featuring Denis Ganio and Evelyn Desutter), London Festival Ballet's Nutcracker in 1986 and Northern Ballet Theatre's Swan Lake in 1988.

Mireille Bourgois was with the then London Festival Ballet (now ENB) when I first started going to see them in the mid-1980s. She was a soloist at the time. I vividly remember a matinee performance of Coppelia with her and Martin James in the leading roles. The weather was awful, the trains were late and I didn't want to be there. It was a wonderful performance and I came out on a real high!

Mireille moved from LFB to Northern Ballet Theatre where she stayed a year before she moved on to BRB. She was a soloist with BRB. Symphony in Three Movements was her finest hour and we still talk about it. I think she left the Company about 11 or 12 years ago.
