Gudrun Bojesen's farewell performance postponed...

Recommended Posts

... for the happiest of reasons: she expects her first child in December. The company hopes to give her a proper farewell at the start of next season instead of the planned April 2016 date.

There's a long interview with her, in Danish, in Berlingske

- she talks about her plans for the future and also the way her perception of retirement has changed from dread to acceptance as the deadline has got nearer.

I couldn't agree more: It is really great news that we might have a chance of seeing her once more on the stage. Thank you for posting a link to the interview, Jane. It is great to learn that she is happy in her new life as a mother.

There was a birthday portrait of her in Jyllands Posten on the 1st of February, a day before her 40th birthday - a full half page with a photo http://www.jyllands-posten.dk/protected/premium/navne/omtale/ECE8406988/en-danserinde-har-gjort-sin-pligt-med-sjael-og-naervaer/.

It said in the first lines after the headline (in my poor translation):

"She was a ballerina in a class of her own. One of those rare ones. One of those who combines a perfect technique with a radiant stage presence, so that you were never in any doubt, that what you saw was a star. Without at any time behaving like a star."
