Among her signature roles are Penelope, Rosina, Charlotte, Cendrillon and Mélisande, and, in trousers, Cherubino, Hänsel and Octavian. Her divorce from her first husband, Peter Elkus, was important in the development of American matrimonial case law, helping to establish the principle that the economic value of a performer's career and celebrity status could be marital property subject to equitable distribution.
