Bruce Posted August 22, 2013 Share Posted August 22, 2013 In reviewing the Bolshoi Ballet season Louise Levene says towards the end:"Osipova, who joins the perilously under-starred Royal Ballet..." The piece is here:http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/theatre/dance/10256938/Bolshoi-2013-Starry-heat-bankable-tutus-and-sublime-dancing.htmlAlthough only mentioned in passing I think it an accurate statement - particularly on the men's side.Are others worried too? or is all hunky-dory?For reference here is what I believe to be the current list of RB Principals...Men: Federico Bonelli, Nehemiah Kish, Steven McRae, Rupert Pennefather, Thiago Soares, Edward WatsonWomen: Lauren Cuthbertson, Sarah Lamb, Roberta Marquez, Laura Morera, Marianela Nunez, Zenaida YanowskyTo which some guests are added...Principal Guest Artists: Carlos Acosta, Natalia OsipovaGuest Artist: Matthew Golding?For info the current list on the ROH website reads:"Principals: Carlos Acosta*, Leanne Benjamin, Federico Bonelli, Alina Cojocaru, Lauren Cuthbertson, Mara Galeazzi, Matthew Golding**, Nehemiah Kish, Johan Kobborg, Sarah Lamb, Roberta Marquez, Steven McRae, Laura Morera, Marianela Nuñez, Natalia Osipova**, Rupert Pennefather, Sergei Polunin**, Tamara Rojo**, Thiago Soares, Edward Watson and Zenaida Yanowsky."It's clearly last seasons list and In compliling my list above I took out all the known leavers. I left Golding in, but not clear if he is a Guest or not in 2013/14 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
