I think Robert will be forever remembered for his creations for David Bintley - most notably the wonderful Cyrano this season - as well as his interpretations of other Bintley roles. Saturday night, despite no Bintley ballets on show, gave us an opportunity to see Robert doing what he does best ie give 150% to whatever performance he is doing. Robert has the most amazing stage presence and is a brilliant actor as well as having feet of quicksilver beautifully shown off in the hornpipes.
He had a wonderful send off at the end of the performance - with everyone on their feet cheering and a splendid flower shower.
His final performance is at the Lowry on 7th July 2007 in Nine Sinatra Songs and Pineapple Poll.
Robert is to retrain as an airline pilot. All his legion of fans wish him all the best in his new career.

Robert Parker is rejoining the company this Autumn. All I can say is: WELCOME BACK ROBERT! (and thank goodness he participated in Desmond Kelly's gala!).
Here is the relevant page on the BRB website:

Here is the announcement from the Elmhurst website: http://www.elmhurstd...c-Director.html
Robert has already been working with Elmhurst and he was listed on the faculty for this year's summer school: http://www.elmhurstd...ert-parker.html
Ismene Brown on the Arts Desk has covered the news and included extracts from an interview she did with Robert some years ago:
Fans of Robert as a dancer will have to make the most of their chances to see him on stage during the next year. He will be dancing (amongst others) Beast in Beauty and the Beast, opening in Birmingham on 28th September.
It's wonderful news for Elmhurst and will establish, I am sure, even closer links between Elmhurst and BRB.
Congratulations to Robert Parker!
