I was a great fan of Giuseppe Picone until he left ABT. I knew he went to the Royal ballet, but I didnīt find any information about him after that. Is he still in the RB? Is he soloist? Principal dancer? What is he dancing now?

It's a bit of a mystery to me what has happened to Piccone. He did one Swan Lake at RB in July 2001 and then his name disappeared from the dancers list. It turned out that he accepted a position as first soloist, but then asked for a principal contract, hence his departure. I don't know where he is now.

Giuseppe Picone is now based in Italy, and does frequent guesting in Vienna, Moscow (with the Bolshoi), and Japan.
