"Casting for Agon"
 
   I have just been on the Royal Opera House web site, and there is still no information as to who is replacing Bussell in Agon. Has anyone heard any news regarding the casting?

   I believe it has been cast but awaiting OK from the Balanchine Trust before announcing it.

   I'm going to throw my hat in the ring here (or whatever the expression is); I'd love to see Yanowsky do it!

What are her chances, anyone?

   If they are looking for a tall dancer - quite good I would think!

Ann - I have managed to lose your e-mail address - can you drop me an e?

   Thanks for the info. I am sorry to show my ignorance, but I don't know anything about the workings of the Balanchine Trust. Do they have to vet the cast before the performance takes place? I would be more than happy to see Yanowsky dance, I have enjoyed her performances recently.

Regarding the same triple bill, I would really like to see Leanne Benjamin in Firebird, as she is a personal favourite of mine. I don't know how serious her injury is, is she likely to be back in action in April? I would appreciate any news that people have, as I have already bought tickets for Giselle, and am not sure if I want to spend any more money at Covent Garden if the casting is doubtful.

   From what I have heard the Balanchine Trust are basically in charge of quality control. Although I do not think they vet casting they may ask to see the rehearsal before they give the go ahead for performances to take place if they think the dancers cast are not suitable or up to the standard required!

I however think Zenaida would be wonderful!!

As for Leanne I am not sure how bad her injury is and if she is back rehearsing - Sorry
