"Absent dancers"
 
   Does anyone know what has happened to Victor Alvarez and Nigel Burley? Have they left the Royal Ballet? I am fairly sure that they did not appear with the list of dancers in the most recent mailing I had from Covent Garden.

Thank you

   Nigel Burley and Rachel Rawlins both left the Royal Ballet
to go back home and rejoin Australian Ballet.
I have no idea what has happened to Victor Alvarez and I am
curious myself.

I saw Nigel on Friday and as he was waiting for Rachel I assume that they are still with the company. He said he was staying to the end of the season and then going back to Australia.

   I can't answer your question, but had one of my own about Victor Alvarez. He was an aspirant (apprentice) at the Royal Danish Ballet in the early '90s and I saw him dance quite a bit. He was almost always double cast with Johan Kobborg, and usually got the better reviews. I was curious what kinds of roles he had (or had had) over there, and what you all thought of him?

Nigel Burley danced second cast "Symphonic Variations" (Somes role) here, by the way -- quite nicely, I thought.

   I only really noticed him specifically when he replaced Mukhamedov in Manon as Lescaut. I thought he was wonderful and Ms. Guillem seemed rather pleased to be dancing with him rather than the dreaded Russian. I saw him in several other pieces but nothing really major and he acquitted himself well in all of them.

I just wanted to know where he had gone as I thought he was someone to keep an eye on.

   Would I be right in thinking that Alvarez has had quite a few injury problems? Certainly I've seen very little of him since he joined.

   Victor has retired from dancing, and gone back (for the time being) to his home town Madrid. Shame, if you ask me, but there you go.
