Eva Evdokimova-Gregori
Birth: Dec. 1, 1948
Geneve, Switzerland
Death: Apr. 3, 2009
New York County (Manhattan)
New York, USA

Ballerina. She performed leading roles with the principal companies of Europe and America. Born and raised in Switzerland of a Bulgarian father and an American mother, she started dancing at six, and was enrolled in the Royal Ballet School in London, England at age 10. After further training in Munich, Germany, she made her professional debut with the Royal Danish Ballet in 1966. Her first appearance at what was to be her best known venue, the Berlin Opera Ballet, came in 1969; she would go on to be the reigning prima ballerina there from 1973 until 1985. Over the years she was to perform (often with Rudolf Nureyev) in numerous leading theatres, including the Kirov Ballet, the National Ballet of Canada, the Tokyo Ballet, the Paris Opera Ballet, and the American Ballet Theater. Her best known and most acclaimed roles was as the title character in August Bournonville's 1836 " La Sylphide"; other notable vehicles for her art included Adolphe Adam's "Giselle", Terpsichore in Ballenchine's "Apollo", and Marie Taglioni in Dolan's "Pas de Quatre", as well as the repertoire classics "Sleeping Beauty" and "Swan Lake". In 1970, she was the first American citizen to win the gold medal at Bulgaria's Varna International Ballet Competition; in 2005, the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow, Russia awarded her the first Ulanova Prize. After she made her final ballet appearances in 1990, she moved to the United States, and served as ballet mistress with the Boston Ballet, where she taught and coached students. (bio by: Bob Hufford)
