Besides John Cranko many famous choreographers like Kenneth Mac-Millan, Maurice Bejart and John Neumeier worked with and for Marcia Haydee. She was a guest dancer in most renowned dance companies the world over and has danced with partners such as Rudolf Nurejew, Michail Barishni- kow, Paolo Bortuluzzi and Jorge Donn. In 1976 Marcia Haydee took over as directress of the Stuttgart Ballet. She kept this post for twenty years. She started a successful carrer as choreogra- pher in 1987.
