Thomas Lund to retire
Posted 31 May 2012 - 03:19 AM
There are details on the RDB site, and Eva Kistrup has a piece about Lund on her blog.
For his last performance he will dance both the Teacher in The Lesson and James in La Sylphide; before then he will do the first 5 performances of Ratmansky's new Golden Cockerel.

It seems that he has spent a lot of his time and energy on other things than dancing lately: teaching, staging, arranging and, last not least, creating special performances for the students of the ballet school. In that way his choice seems logical enough, and I wish him good luck from my very heart! I think his great qualities both as a dancer and as a person can only be of hugh benefit to the school, and that means, in the end, benefit to the company as well.
But, seen with eyes of the audience it is almost unbearable to loose him "before time".
