  • Description

    The world of ballet mourned the death of the Marquis de Cuevas, Feb 22.

    At his seaside villa in Cannes, Southern France, his lonely pet-dog and one or two members from his world famous ballet troupe moved in silence in the room where he lay for the last time, after his long illness.

    His death at the age of 75 came on the eve of the French Riviera premiere in Cannes of his latest production - a new interpretation of "The Sleeping Beauty" - which had just ended its Paris run. Now the Riviera premiere was postponed as a sign of mourning.

    In recent months, the Marquis - a Spanish-born naturalized American - rarely ventured outside his villa. If he did so, it was in an ambulance to see again his ballet company either in Nice or in Monte Carlo.
