Soft in her movements, dramatic and passionate: the most secret corners of the personality of one of the greatest 20th-century ballerinas.
[Carla Fracci / The spectacle of my life] Carla Fracci is considered one of the greatest ballerinas of the 20th century. Acclaimed all over the world for her performances of Giselle and La Sylphide, a technical impeccable dancer, she has worked with the most outstanding partners of the last generations.
Prima ballerina at Teatro alla Scala starting in 1958, Fracci has reaped success on all the major stages of the ballet world, from London to Paris, New York to Chicago, performing both the classical repertoire, in which she excels, and modern works.
Soft in her movements, exceptional in the ‘port de bras’, she can be airy and immaterial, noble and intense, dramatic and passionate.
This splendid autobiography narrates, in words and images, the life and career of an exceptional artist.
