Miyako Yoshida
Royal Ballet principal dancer Miyako Yoshida has announced her retirement after 14 years of dancing with the company. Her last performances are in The Nutcracker and Cinderella at the Royal Opera House and her final one in Romeo and Juliet, on tour with the Royal Ballet in Japan, in the Summer.

It has been interesting to watch her career develop since the age of seventeen, when she won the Prix de Lausanne competition that gave her a scholarship to The Royal Ballet School. She has danced a varied repertoire including classical roles like the title role in Giselle, Odette/Odile in Swan Lake, Princess Aurora in The Sleeping Beauty and the Sugar Plum Fairy in The Nutcracker. A number of Balanchine ballets and from the Ashton repertory she enchanted as Lise in La Fille mal gardée, the Blue Girl in Les Patineurs, and Titania in The Dream. In the MacMillian repertory, her roles included Juliet in Romeo and Juliet.

I was hoping others would use this post to put on reviews of Nutcracker's from around the world.
