It seems as though they're all leaving for different reasons so, in an outsider's view, I don't think it portends a crisis. For fans of these particular dancers, though, it must be a disappointment.
What do people who actually see the company regularly think?

I myself am very sad to see these dancers go. I attended a special event honoring Joanna Berman last Sunday, which was very touching.
Lucia is a very special dancer, and I think it was great for SFB to have such a "controversial" dancer. Those who loved her loved her immensely, and those who hated her really hated her! She dances with great feeling, though, and I'll miss her.
As for Cyril and Roman, they dance wonderfully and I certainly hope the ranks of principal male dancers will stay up when they leave. I'm really curious, though -- I thought Roman Rykine and Lorena Feijoo are a couple -- if they still are will she follow him to Boston?? eek.gif Does anybody know if they're still together?
I know for sure, though, if Yuan Yuan Tan announced that she was leaving the company, I would just cry. She is my favorite. biggrin.gif

But seriously, it looks like they're going to be making a few promotions next year, not just to principal but to soloist as well, considering there are all of 7 or 8 soloists right now and at least one is likely to be promoted. Can't say who though, but I have a few favorites.
