Brioche, that's sad. I remember Loscavio at SF Ballet, and what a goddess she was. Never did understand her departure. she has been and will be sorely missed.

I love Elizabeth Loscavio and will miss her. She is only 36, seems early to retire.

She is wonderful as Princess Natalia in Neumeir's "Illusions - like Swan Lake", available on DVD.

A couple of quotes (paraphrased) from one the Hamburg newspapers regarding Elizabeth's retirement on Sunday (June 27):

"Elizabeth Loscavio leaves Hamburg ballet, to which she belonged since 1998 as a first Soloist(principal.) The open and warm American formed herself in many roles. For seven years Loscavio danced in the company of John Neumeier, and celebrated large successes as "Giselle" and Natalia in "Illusions - like Swan Lake".

"After 18 years of a wonderful dance career I would like to begin a new life with my fiance Carsten Jung (a newly appointed principal at Hamburg)and am very happy with my decision to retire now. I would like to coach and teach and pass on what I experienced."
