At the age of 84, the great Italian dancer Carla Frazzi passed away today in Milan, at the age of 84. He has been fighting cancer for a long time.

He was born in 1936 in Milan. At the age of ten, after her first dance lessons at the Milan Tram Cultural Association, her parents enrolled her in the La Scala Theater School. She made her debut in 1955, always in the legendary theater of Milan, with Cinderella.

In 1958 she was selected as the first dancer, at the age of just 22 years. In her career she played more than 150 roles, from The Nutcracker to Swan Lake. In 1963 she began dancing with Rudolf Nureyev and their collaboration would continue for twenty whole years. The New York Times called her “the ultimate, leading first dancer.”

From the 1960s it was autonomous, without a permanent relationship with any major theater. “My father drove a tram, my mother was a worker. They taught me that success is gained. “I worked, I worked and I worked again,” she said.

From the late 1970s, with television nights on Rai, he allowed the general public to experience classical ballet, and had also acted as a film actress in The True Story of the Lady with the Camellias, starring Jean-Marie Volonte.

In recent years he has given a great fight against the reduction of classical ballet troupes of cultural institutions, while from 2000 to 2010 he was the head of the ballet troupe of the Rome Opera House, according to a response from the Athens News Agency.

Last January she made her last appearance: a lesson to La Scala dancers based on Giselle’s interpretation. Her body will be placed in a public shrine at the world-famous theater in Milan.
