I do hope he manages to pace himself all right.  Alexei Ratmansky, at a recent RB insight evening, said something to the effect that he never feels he has as much time as he would really like.

Liam told us he is doing "something sunny" for the Royal Ballet 2014/15 season.  Kevin O'Hare also mentioned that there are a number of exciting projects in the pipeline for following seasons.

BBB, your 'something sunny' report brought into my mind a picture of a ballet based on Gilbert and Sullivan's Mikado, bright and sunny, with dark moments, and lots of different kinds of characters. Anyone else have their own sunny ideas?

I forgot to mention that Liam Scarlett choreographed a new piece for Japan's K-Ballet Company, led by Tetsuya Kumakawa. The piece was premiered this June and called "Promenade Sentimentale" music by Debussy. Missed seeing the piece but here is a Japanese review and also some pictures. The costumes were also designed by Liam. It got very good reviews.
