"Bruce Sansom's last performance"
   Well, the Covent Garden audience certainly gave Bruce a good send-off this evening (as presumably the dancers are now doing as I write): blue and silver star-shaped balloons, cuddly toys, and a big "Good Luck" sash, as well as probably the biggest flower throw I've ever seen, not to mention bouquets and bouquets of flowers. I didn't time the curtain calls, but they must have lasted for the better part of 10 minutes, and Bruce looked more than a little overcome. In a way, it was a shame that he went out on his début as Lescaut in "Manon", rather than Des Grieux which he performed last Friday, as his character tonight was killed off in the second act (a very bloody death scene), and all the farewells did rather detract from Revie and Acosta's curtain calls, but that's life, as they say.

He will be sorely missed - I know his dancing has given me many hours of enjoyment over the last 11 years - but we wish him all the best in his new life.
