The POB etoile has announced to a Japanese dance magazine that her farewell performance will be Manon with Josua Hoffalt, sometime in January 2014.

I suppose it had to happen, but she will only be 41 in 2014, wheras in USA this year she said two and a half years. It will just not be the same at the POB without Aurelie there. I saw her dance Manon this year,, with Josua as Des Grieux and her husband Jeremie Belingard as Lescaut, and it was fantastic.
Hopefully she will come back as a guest artist for a few performances.

So that same year Agnès Letestu will also be retiring? I can't help but say it will definitely be a rough year for POB. These two dancers are in my opinion the ones that brought something special to POB, worthy of being called an étoile. With Marie-Agnes Gillot left, I don't think the other ballerinas have achieved that same level of quality (yet). When I see Aurelie, I really see a textbook example of a ballerina. Not only by her technique, but more about her 'air': the elegance, sophistication, grace, refineness. Agnes Letestu hits the nail in the interview with Marc Haegeman:

There seems to be some changes to Aurelie retiring with Manon in January 2014 (which was  wrong anyway)Now the calendar for the 2014/2015 season has been announced by POB, the production is not performed until April/May 2015. If I remember correctly she told  me when I met her after Le Parc, she did not have a lot to do next season. Hopefully this will be clarified after the  various distributions are announced.
