Quote

Yvette Chauviré n'est plus...
Peine et souvenirs .émue en pensant à son élégance a la perfection de son style 
Merci à elle d'avoir accepté de nous transmettre son art
Une ballerine d'exception

Paris Opera just tweeted:

Quote

L’Opéra de Paris a la tristesse d’apprendre ce jour le décès de la grande danseuse Étoile Yvette Chauviré.

 

As did Laura Cappelle, with a link to the beautiful video in volcanohunter's post.

 

Rest in peace, Mme Chauviré.

From the Guardian obituary

 

"She also created the female role in Grand Pas Classique, a brilliant display piece choreographed by Tatjana’s husband, Victor Gsovsky, still popular today."

 

I didn't really know this -- changes my idea about her dancing.

 

(plus, I know that publications often have people write obits in advance, so that they can do the research thoughtfully, but this is one of the first times I've seen the writer die before the subject of the writing.  Again, from the Guardian:

 

Yvette Chauviré, ballerina, born 22 April 1917; died 19 October 2016

Judith Cruickshank died in July 2016)
