    Liam Scarlett is dead at age 35. Associated Press. The Times The Daily Mail
  2. I don't think any charges were ever filed anywhere. The independent investigation of the Royal Ballet matter said there were "no matters to pursue."
  3. The Royal Danish Ballet canceled because apparently there were complaints about Scarlett within the organization. Not a typical cancellation and not surprising that it would be noted in the press given Scarlett's having been dumped from the Royal Ballet and his ballets canceled there (and elsewhere). The word "offensive" was used by the ROH's director, speaking to The Times: "Offensive behaviour is unacceptable at the Royal Theatre."
  4. Thank you for those details, JMcN. The decision for no military uniforms eliminates some fuss, in more senses than one.

    Darcey Bussell organizes a benefit gala for British ballet.
  9. Thank you for the reminder, JMcN. Plainly, the last twelve months slipped my mind. Even if he hadn't wanted one, I expect he'd get something on the more substantial side under normal circumstances even if not a fully-fledged state funeral. There is supposed to be a ceremonial procession that I assume will be televised - the service itself will be private.

    Nathan Brook of the Australian Ballet cleans up at the Telstra Awards.
  13. Thank you, Tom. I know less about this era than I would like. I hope others who know more will have something to say. You may want to try a trip to the library, as well.
  14. We have threads for royal weddings and royal obsequies have their aesthetic interest as well. Discuss if you wish, with appropriate discretion and respect in the circumstances. In this case I expect the widow to pull out all the stops. The soldiery in particular should be worth watching. The late Duke was not exactly the artistic type, but I have read that he wrote poetry, believe it or not.
