RIP Zizi Jeanmaire

Recommended Posts

Sad news.  I only saw her dance live twice but the memory burns bright.  She was a force of nature.  RIP.

She was indeed.  I saw her once at a gala hosted by Natalia Makarova in the mid 80s.

Two utterly glorious divas.

unforgettable - in classical ballet and in 'truc au plumes'.  She will be much missed.

Muse du chorégraphe Roland Petit, Zizi Jeanmaire a bouleversé les frontières traditionnelles de la danse, de la chanson et du music-hall. Elle est morte à 96 ans.

She was so chic and sophisticated.

Unforgettable in her signature ballet Carmen.

Very sad news. R.I.P 🙏🏽

And, from a different angle, who can forget that line from Peter Sarstedt's "Where do you go to, my Lovely?": "You talk like Marlene Dietrich/And you dance like Zizi Jeanmaire ..."

I never had a chance to see her on stage but loved in "Hans Christian Andersen" (1952).

Gala review

 

I never saw her live in a classical piece, but I did see her in "Mon truc aux plumes". It was electrifying! She was dancing in this gala at the Coliseum in the early 1970s with famous classical dancers from around the world and she stole the show!  This is from the NY Times, the only reference I could find.  The show may have been a flop financially, but it was a triumph as far as the audience was concerned.
