Principal of the Royal Ballet Sarah Wildor has "resigned". Very sad news.

Sad news indeed, Amy. Surely she's too young to retire from dancing. Is it known if she's gone to another company?

Terribly sorry and sad to hear this!
I was touched so much by Sarah's performances, the "happy" ones such as Lise, but even more in the big dramatic roles, and just as one example of many I treasure how bravely she took over Juliet from Darcey, dancing with Zelensky - not everyone's taste, maybe, BUT THIS IS BALLET, isn't it?
I hope this won't point into a direction of an AD pushing the technical wizzards but neglecting the dancer-actors... We'll see.

Good luck to Sarah, and I hope to learn soon what she will be doing in future - hopefully we'll be able to see her somewhere!

There's a RB press release about it on ballet.co: [url="http://"http://www.danze.co.uk/cgi-bin/dcforum/dcboard.cgi?az=show_thread&om=1011&forum=news&omm=0"]http://www.danze.co.uk/cgi-bin/dcforum/dcb...orum=news&omm=0[/url]

but it gives no details about her future career.

A note to my husband.

"Honey, thanks again for taking me to London last month; otherwise I would have missed the privilege of seeing Sarah Wildor in 'The Dream'"
