Darcey Bussell is appearing at Sadlers Wells in May in a Farewell programme (she will still have a few performances with the Royal in early June after that). It is presented by George Piper Dances and includes appearances by Roberto Bolle, Jonathan Cope , Tamara Rojo, William Trevitt, Michael Nunn and Ed Watson.

Details at


Includes pas de deux from In the Middle (Forsythe) and Tryst (Wheeldon - with Cope) plus Winter Dreams.

Tickets went on sale today and are going very fast.

Please move this posting if it's not in the correct place.

I hope some of you are able to attend and report.

Curiosity about Wheeldon's "Tryst" led me to this, in a 2002 review in the Telegraph:

Bussell is this year a revelation, less statuesque, more responsive. Bourreeing and sashaying, she winds charms around Cope, toppling teasingly away from him, compelling him to catch, touch, hold her, so that she can reach into the sky with her toe. Wheeldon engineers this pinpoint partnering with a true wonderment.

Bussell and Cope are listed to perform this time too.

Cope never had a proper farewell, did he? So this is a double "goodbye"?
