Another, equally ecstatic review also reveals the sad news that this was Schandorff's last Sylphide.

Oh, that is sad news. I was lucky enough to see her Sylphide when the RDB was in Washington DC a few years ago. I found her mesmerizing, and was hoping for the opportunity to see her in it again someday.

It would be nice, however, to know what he was saying in the taxi and while preparing, apprently rather nervously, for the performance.
A small point: that was one classy entrance by Queen Margrethe, slender and elegant in red. Not to mention the way she descended swiftly but gracefully into her chair.

However, I got all choked up again (as we all did at his farewell performance) watching this.
I know this makes me sound like a stick-in-the-mud but I wish ballet dancers (and everyone else!) would stop smoking.
Before they started the Lincoln Plaza reconstruction I would regularly see some NYCB dancers smoke outside (before they went down the stairs and into the theatre).
I've been told that some of them do it to keep their weight down, but I'd rather have more robust dancers than having them risk their health by smoking.

A wonderful, little video for many reasons. Thank you, Anne.

The taxidriver recognises him and asks how old he is, since he has to retire. Hübbe answers, that he is forty and then makes a Danish joke with three f's: forty, fat and finished. Then he changes the joke and makes up three other f-words, this time with a positive value, something like: forty, fastgoing and fiery.
In the theatre he says, fiddling with the waterbottle, that one's biggest worry is to get safe through the solos, meaning not getting injured. Then he asks for some time on his own to be able to concentrate.
Later we see him dressing, and he's annoyed because he's sweating a lot, from nerves I guess, his clothes are all wet. In the meantime you see people fill up the theatre (including myself and my husband! ).
I think, that's all that needs to be translated. If some of you want more translations, don't hesitate to ask.
