Do you mean in Lady of the camellias last October? There is some (mine) report here and a couple of videos in Agnès thread... http://balletalert.i...-agnes-letestu/

She gave another one in Japan though in March.

This article seems to state that May 8th, 2014 was the farewell:

The article reviews a performance that took place in October, only Ms. Boccadoro took her time and published it only on May 8. However, Letestu, though officially retired, is appearing in the POB's current run of Palais de Cristal, dancing the second movement on May 15, 18 and 29.

Thus my confusion. ;)

 

Thanks for clarifying, Volcanohunter.
