Great news! Isabelle Ciavarola and Karl Paquette will appear in A. Alonso's "Carmen", a piece constituting the Sylvie Guillem programme scheduled for next week (she in the title role; he as "Toreador").

My only concern is if this Sylvie Week would happen at all; it's been announced that owing to Sylvie's foot injury, the week has been cut short - performances for the first three days have been cancelled. Details are now updated in ROH's website:

Please keep fingers crossed for us!

Alas - ALL the shows have now been cancelled. (I just found the info. on ballet.co)

I could only wish Sylvie a full and speedy recovery. In the statement Sylvie was quoted as saying that she was not a dancer prone to injury and it is very rare for her to be off. It's true - I've seen her for many years and not known of more robust and durable dancer as her.

Get well soon!
