An obituary for Milorad Miskovitch from the Guardian:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/stage/2013/jul/07/milorad-miskovitch

'The ideal partner" was Alicia Markova's description of the Serbian dancer Milorad Miskovitch, who has died aged 85. To merit this description, Markova called for "talent, intelligence and temperament" and the ability to "move with grace and nobility". Travel and hard work should be shared, she stated, "with good humour, as well as the joy and pleasure of successful performances". Miskovitch possessed all these qualities, as well as quite remarkable good looks which he retained well into his later years.

It’s a homecoming for Manuel Legris. The charismatic Paris Opera Ballet étoile left a sizeable gap on his retirement four years ago, at the mandatory age of 42. He hasn’t rested on his laurels: he was appointed artistic director of the Vienna Ballet in 2010 and has worked tirelessly since to put the venerable institution, long a dormant force in ballet, back on the map.
