Gem til liste

One of Denmark’s leading international ballet figures and choreographers Flemming Flindt has died in Sarasota, Florida following a short illness. He was 72.

Flindt was educated at Copenhagen’s Royal Ballet School and was appointed a solo dancer at the age of 21. He then went on to begin an international dancing career with the Paris Opera Ballet and the London Festival Ballet, returning to head the Danish Royal Ballet from 1966 to 1978.

In 1981 he went on to become the artistic director of the Dallas Ballet until 1988.

Among his many productions, one that caused much sensation was his 1972 Triumph of Death, a ballet in which the cast danced naked to modern music by the Savage Rose group.

Flindt is to be buried in Denmark on an as yet unspecified date.
