Interesting interview with the RB's young Colombian dancer Fernando Montaño:

A shame the pictures appear missing as Signor Montaño is one handsome dude.

LEANNE BENJAMIN TO RETIRE AFTER 20 YEARS AS A PRINCIPAL DANCER WITH THE ROYAL BALLET

The Royal Ballet has announced that Leanne Benjamin is to retire at the end of the present season after 21 years dancing with the company. Her last performance will be in Tokyo on 10 July in "A Gala Evening with The Royal Ballet" at the Bunka Kaikan, Tokyo. as part of The Royal Ballet’s summer tour. Her final performance at The Royal Opera House will be as Mary Vetsera in the season finale of "Mayerling" on 15 June. Co-incidentally, Benjamin danced the same role in her first performance with the company in 1992.

Benjamin says, "I am incredibly fortunate to have had such a long and exciting life as a ballerina, and I feel, with Mayerling at the end of the season, there would be no better way for me to draw my career as a dancer at the Opera House to a close. I realise how blessed I am to have had such a unique and expansive career, spanning many companies and working with a multitude of extra-ordinary people. I owe a great debt of gratitude to so many people who nurtured me in the early part of my career and, of course, having made The Royal Ballet my home for the last 20 years, I want to thank everyone there who has worked tirelessly to support me personally and professionally. I will always remain grateful and thankful for the opportunities I have enjoyed as a result of that support.”

Kevin O’Hare adds, “Leanne has been such a huge part of The Royal Ballet for the last 21 years it is hard to imagine the Company without her. But, I am sure the memory of her unique and very special talent will remain with us through the many roles she created during her long career. Leanne will be much missed and we wish her well with all her future plans.”
