So sad, another ABT soloist retiring without much fanfare or farewell.  Scott was one of those dancers we never seemed to see dance often enough, but when he did get the chance he was completely invested in the performance.  Best of luck to him in his future endeavors.

Agree. I still remember how clean and crisp his technique was in Seven Sonatas. 

I can’t help but wonder who may have been promoted to fill these spots if the season had gone forward.

Arron Scott is probably my favorite Mercutio ever, and I've seen a lot in the 45 years I've been going to the ballet.  The Prokofiev score is glorious but Mercutio's death scene seems to go on and on and on and most dancers I've seen tended to milk the scene for all it was worth, going OTT trying to fill out the music.  Scott on the other hand reined it in, giving a wonderfully restrained performance that reached the Dress Circle without descending into caricature as so many others have.

I'm another fan who will miss Arron Scott.
