Caroline Cavallo to retire in December

There's a nice interview with her (in English), on the RDB website.

She is a very versatile dancer, and it has been very interesting to follow her career. She has grown enormously during the years, starting a bit anonimously, a brilliant technician but no great personality on stage. But that changed! One of her most impressive and moving performances was the Sylphide, which I saw in 2003, where she danced with Nikolaj Hübbe, who was a guest dancer a few times in his own production. Until then I had regarded her as a more modern dancer, but that night it was like seing her in her right element, regarding both style and expression. In the above mentioned interview the Sylphide is listed as one of her greatest achievements on her part, and I can understand why. She was also a very moving Anna Karenina in Ratmansky's ballet, which he created especially for the RDB, and very recently she danced "Les Bras de Mers" with Jean-Lucien Massot, which clearly showed what two mature artists can do on a stage! Hübbe has wisely used this pas de deux by Petr Zuska again in his new mixed bill programme "Dance2go", with Cavallo/Massot and to great critical acclaim.

Caroline Cavallo Retires
The fact that Caroline Cavallo ended up saving the premiere of the Royal Danish Ballet's production of "Sleeping Beauty" as her last performance with the company is a fitting metaphor for her 21 years at the RDB. She has been the most reliable and constant force of the company, the one scores of ballet masters could depend on and probably the hardest and most dedicated worker in the company.
