Clarimonde is a vampire courtesan in La Morte Amoureuse (1836), a short story by Theophile Gautier. First published in French magazine La Chronique de Paris in 1836, the story is narrated by a young priest who falls in love wth unearthily beautifiul, blonde and green-eyed Clarimonde.
The Vampire Happening (Gebissen wird nur nachts, 1971), a vampire sex comedy made in West Germany, features a subplot with the vampire and "scarlet woman" Clarimonde seducing a monk.
Clarimonde (1998), written by Gerard Wexler and starring Audrey Benoit, is rather faithful version made for Canadian TV series The Hunger. However, this time Clarimonde is a succubus, who keeps herself beautiful by sex.
La Morte Amoureuse (directed by Alain Vézina - 1995) is a very loose adaptation, set in modern day.
Clarimonde, a new opera by composer Frédéric Chaslin and libretist P. H. Fisher will be an adaptation of Gautier´s story.
