From the ROH website
The Royal Ballet are pleased to announce that with immediate effect: Jaimie Tapper
has been promoted to Principal Deirdre Chapman
and Isabel McMeekan
Biographies for all are on the link above.
I'm delighted! I thought Jaimie was a wonderful Larisch with Cope, enjoyed her Giselle a great deal last season and am looking forward to her London debuts in Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty. I always thought she'd make a beautiful Juliet, I hope it's not too long before we find out!
Likewise for Deirdre Chapman, liked her a great deal as Mitzi Casper in Mayerling recently, eagerly waiting to find out what else she's capable of. I think I noticed Isabel McMeekan for the first time in Tryst recently - has she had any other significant roles?
