Sophie Fedorovitch



Born in Russia, Sophie Fedorovitch came to London in 1920. She became one of Ashton's closest friends and collaborators, designing his first ballet, A Tragedy of Fashion, in 1926 and subsequently Les Masques, Mephisto Valse, Baiser de la fée, Nocturne, Horoscope, Dante Sonata, Symphonic Variations and his production of Gluck's Orfeo ed Euridice in 1953, the year she died. Ashton dedicated A Month in the Country to her memory. She also created designs for André Howard's La Fête étrange for the London Ballet (1940) and Veneziana for Sadler's Wells Ballet (1953), her last work. For Covent Garden Opera (now Royal Opera), she designed Madama Butterfly, Sophie and La traviata.
