The name change for Kizzy Howard would indicate she and Tim have formally tied the knot. Congratulations to both of them.

Jodie Thomas makes her debut as an RDB member tonight in the fourth movement of Symphony in C, which forms part of a preview of the new season's opera and ballet productions, given in the open air at the Rosenborg Eksercerplads in Copenhagen and also transmitted live on a big screen in the city centre. She'll be dancing with Ulrik Birkkjaer.

Interesting factoid from the interview w/ Nikolaj Hubbe in the August/September issue of Pointe -- 40% of the RDB's 98 dancers are foreign (including a dozen from North America.)

Make of it what you will . . .
