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"?
