"And Thomas Lund has not totally closed the door to do the odd troll role."
made me smile. Here's hoping for an odd troll or two!

The Danish newspaper "Politiken" reported on the occasion a couple of days later, and the article was accompanied by a really good picture from the celebration after the finale:
Nearly all the ballerinas Lund has danced with during the years appeared on stage one by one and gave him a red rose. After the 24 ballerinas, "Bamse", an oversized teddybear, and his two likewise oversized friends "Chick" and "Duckling" made their entrance on the stage. "Bamse", Chick" and "Duckling" have their own extremely popular television programme, and they are also the leading characters in Lund's children's ballet "Teddy goes ballet!". It was a great surprise to both the audience and visibly also to Lund, and brought some relieving laughter to the whole occasion.
The picture in Politiken has catched this moment brilliantly: article and picture

»En sjælden gang kommer der en kunstner, som publikum tager til sig som en gave. Du har været den mest elskede danser af dem alle, både på og uden for scenen«, sagde balletmester Nikolaj Hübbe, mens han kæmpede for at få styr på stemmen under aftenens maratonapplaus.
» A rare time comes there a artist that the audience takes to itself as a gift. You have been the most beloved dancer of them all, both on and offstage, "said Nikolaj Hübbe as balletmaster he fought to take control of your voice during this evening's Marathon round of applause.
My nighttime photo was, sadly, an unreadable blur, but here is a clearer daytime photo of the announcement board to the right of the theater entrance:

And, what a wonderful photo from the celebration, where Thomas gets a "tour en l'air" by his colleagues!

Thomas Lund had a wonderful career, and I'm very happy that he will be a guardian of the tradition he embodies.
