:crying: It has been reported in the Australia press that Herve Moreau was badly injured when performing in La Bayadare on the last matinee. It appears that he landed badly and his knee twisted the wrong way. As he was uanble to get up, the curtains were closed, and they finished the last few minutes of the performnce. He was in a Brisbane hospital, and due to return to Paris where he was expected to undergo surgery for the injury. Let us hope he will soon recover, and be back on form.

"French principal dancer injured in Brisbane stage fall." Article in The Australian.

"Producer Leo Schofield said: "You can't move people when they've had a fall like that. You just have to leave him until the paramedics come and he's stretchered out. The cast was waiting in the wings to come on for the final tableau, but they made the decision not to try to move him."

It seems that the last day of the POB in Brisbane was quite hectic as in the evening performance of the same day, Isabelle Ciaravola (who was the Nikiya of Hervé Moreau at the matinee) had to replace Marie-Agnès Gillot in the third act with Stéphane Bullion as Solor...

:D I should think by all accounts the company were pleased to leave for home and their holidays. Seems Australia being "downunder" has it's downside for the POB as during an earlier tour there were difficulties!!! Or is it just not Herve's scene???

Well Marie-Agnès has already danced since then at the Nijinsky-gala in Hamburg mid July... It's more serious for Hervé who won't dance Albrecht by the end of September in the opening of the POB season.
