Peter Farmer dies

Recommended Posts

Very sad.  Not only did he create the numerous La Sylphides which Johan mentions, but of course he's also responsible for the current Royal Ballet Sleeping Beauty, along with many many other works.


....and the current ENB Nutcracker. I remember him speaking at an Insight event prior to opening night. Such an interesting and self-effacing man.


Here is an extract from the ROH website:

So very sad to hear this. I met Peter many times. He was such a humble man with a wicked sense of humour. He gave me a pair of pointe shoes from Russia & a book signed by Anton Dolin & John Curry, which I treasure.

Rest in peace, Peter.
