Obituary in Forbes.

Quote

Born on August 20th, 1938, in Milan, Fracci (whose original first name is actually Carolina) was the daughter of Luigi Fracci, a tram driver, and Santina Rocca, a factory worker. She first entered the Scala dancing school in 1946, through family acquaintances. Her slim figure and delicate features made her perfect for the role. She would then become famous for her interpretation skills, which allowed her to almost completely merge with her characters. Among the most popular is “Giselle”, a woman driven to madness and death by her lover’s betrayal.

“Because of COVID, I couldn't really bring in any principal dancers from Colorado like we've done in the past because I wasn't sure if they would have to quarantine or if they would have their vaccinations,” Kathy Koester, artistic director, said.

“So, I picked a ballet I could fully cast from our local area. As such, similar to the opera, a lot of times Hansel is played by a woman in the opera. We are having a dancer, a woman, play Hansel in the ballet.”
