My apologies, because it will be too late for anyone to get a copy by now, but "Stella" magazine in the Sunday Telegraph had an interview with Darcey Bussell on her move back to the UK and future plans. It didn't seem to overlap too much with the other interviews we've posted here recently. I don't think "Stella" articles ever come online, but you're welcome to look.


Edit: I do have a copy of this if someone would like it.

That "tutu" article is very interesting. I must admit, I'd never thought to look for all those nuances in the Rose Adage before, although I have sometimes been disconcerted at the rather over-confident characterisation of various Auroras over the years.

Debra Craine has a long interview with Alexei Ratmansky in this morning's Times - mostly about his Cinderella in Edinburgh but mentioning also the new piece he's doing for the RB next season: an abstract work to music by Jean Francaix, which he describes as 'rhythmically, the most sophisticated classical music I know, yet it's light-hearted with lots of humour. It speaks to me, I love it.'
