Elaine McDonald, RIP

Recommended Posts

An obituary for Elaine McDonald, who has died at age 75.


Although born in Yorkshire and trained in London, McDonald’s connection with Scotland spanned more than two decades and was as important to the country as it was to her. Known as “Scotland’s first ballerina”, her world-class technique and dramatic interpretation shone far beyond the Scottish Ballet Glasgow headquarters she called home. Performer, muse, company leader – McDonald’s career saw her win over crowds at home and abroad, including performances at the Edinburgh International Festival and partnering Rudolf Nureyev in La Sylphide in Madrid and at the London Coliseum.
