Francesca "Fanny" Cerrito
Birth: May 11, 1817
Death: May 6, 1909

Ballet dancer. One of the most famous ballerinas of the Romantic era. Her greatest role was the lead role in 'Ondine'. She Studied under Perrot, Blasis and Saint-Leon, and made her debut in Naples, her birth place. In the next two decades she became a star in Europe and danced in the major cities. She later married Arthur Saint-Leon. This marriage broke up in 1851 and she became mistress to Marquis de Bedmar. Created roles in Orfa and Gemma, her own ballets. Her retirment may have been related to the falling scenery which hit her the year earlier.  (bio by: Find A Grave)
