Darcey Bussell to retire
Posted 14 October 2005 - 05:56 AM
"Darcey Bussell, one of Covent Garden's biggest crowd-pullers and the most popular British ballerina since Margot Fonteyn, announced her retirement as principal dancer with the Royal Ballet yesterday."
The Daily Telegraph
I have always known this would happen sooner or later. I just hope I get the chance to see her perform again before she goes. She is, in my opinion, one of the most wonderful dancers I have ever seen.

The whole time I saw Margot Fonteyn (from the late 60s well into the 70s) with the RB she danced under this kind of arrangement.
And I believe she started this well before I saw her, back in the early-mid 60s
This is not to quess how long Bussell will dance on this kind of basis but it could be one season or a couple of them

Solor, I like your point particularly. She is, as you say, a classy dame.
