I think it's only a case of cutting out the URL from the YT page and posting it here, isn't it?

Thanks, Tim B, for bringing it to our attention and thanks John for posting it up. I notice a distinct lack of flowers.....do the French not have the tradition of giving a dancer flowers on stage? Just curious....

re flowers - you are right - i have never noticed them do so - mind you a flower throw would present logistical problems as the width of pit & depth of stage at Palais Garnier is pretty tremendous - but they do have dibs of the "grand defile" which is one of the most spectacular quarters of an hour in classical ballet (IMO)

"Ballerina Darcey Bussell is also said to be involved in the closing ceremony. Royal Ballet dancers are rumoured to appear dressed as flames and Bussell is the phoenix."

 

This is from today's London Evening Standard - a piece about the Olympics. This is the link but I've not done a link before on this site so it might not work. There's nothing more in the article about ballet than what I have quoted above anyway. But in any event it's an interesting idea!

Tim, I was really referring to ballerinas being brought bouquets onto the stage; for example, when Darcey Bussell retired she ended up surrounded by flowers on the stage! These are bouquets sent to the stage door by friends, fans and families of the ballerina(s) dancing that night, and an usher presents them to her/them onstage.

 

And yes....no-one does a grand defile like the POB!!
