* John Neumeier’s Lady of the Camellias – a large-scale, narrative ballet set to original concert music by Frédéric Chopin – is based on the novel of the same name by Alexandre Dumas junior, written in 1848.
* Produced in 1986 at the Studio Hamburg, this film stars legendary ballerina Marcia Haydée as Dumas’s beautiful, doomed heroine Marguerite and Ivan Liska as an ideal Armand.
