Here is the link for the promotions, joiners and leavers for 2003:


Its great news about Mara Galeazzi going up to Principal, and its really good to see promotions further down the ranks including Lauren Cuthbertson (whose Lilac Fairy I especially enjoyed!)
Its also a shame we're losing Jamie Bond to Birmingham Royal Ballet

Enjoy! xx

I don't live in London, so going to Covent Garden and seeing a full-length ballet by the RB was a really REALLY big deal for me. I can't really remember who danced Aurora or Lilac Fairy, but I do remember Ethan Stiefel as the Prince and Lauren Cuthbertson in the second Fairy variation. My mom and I agreed after the performance that she really stood out among the fairy variations, and look what's happening now! A promotion for her! Yay! :devil:

I'd also like to mention here that seeing Ludovic Ondiviela mentioned in the promotions article is also 'neat' because he really stood out to me when I watched the Prix de Lausanne 2001 video. Wow, if/when he becomes a principal one day, I can say that I saw him dance James from La Sylphide as a 15 year old... and the people will have to believe me! :wink:

There are no real surprises in the promotions esp. :

Mara Galeazzi is promoted to Principal....Deirdre Chapman and Isabel McMeekan are promoted to First Soloists

These, along with Lauren Cuthbertsen, have been comimg for a while, you could see it in last year's (esp. towrds the end of the season) casting....

All these dancers had 'better' and higher profile roles that before....

Very much agreed. No surprises here although Natasha Oughtred's omission did startle me. She's impressed every time I see her!
