I just wish Anthony Dowell had announced her promotion from the stage - it would have made an unforgettable evening even more exciting, and also we might all have learned how to pronounce her name properly!
I'm going to see Rojo on Monday, and Wildor in another couple of weeks, and will try to post something then.

I agree with both Jane and Drew -- it's a shame superlatives are tossed around so carelessly. It raises expectations and must put a horrendous pressure on the young recipient (after the glow wears off). It often means that, next year, we'll be reading "whatever happened to," when a very able and promising young dancer should be developing slowly.
(I have to say, Jane, that I had a jolt at reading that Kobborg was "too old" for her. I'm sure you're right, but I keep thinking of him as the teenager who was so charming in "Kermesse" in 1992. I think, too, that he, unfortunately, looks a bit older than he is on stage.)
