It is sad. I managed to see him in all his roles with the Royal - he was such a charmer in Alice...I also liked his first post Royal performances until the offers dried up. I do regret not having seen him as Rudolf in Munich when he was guesting last year - heavens it’s a role made for him. I do have one very pleasant “groupie” memory...when he danced with Rojo in M&A at her farewell performance, they and other RB dancers were at the large table next to mine in the Delaunay - I was with 3 friends. One of them - she loves him still - went over to say hello. I cringed with embarrassment but was v v v envious. Anyway she said something, he nodded and turned round and raised his glass to the table. We did the same, cringe worthy I know. But it was a great smile and a nice moment. And that’s why I’m so angry because it’s all a waste, and for me politics do count. Particularly if you’re at the receiving end.
