And I agree about Morera....she has had a brilliant season, and I won't let her go until we have seen her as Juliet and Mary Vetsera. It's a pity: I don't rate Choe quite as highly as some on here but I do remember the delicate freshness of her Dances at a Gathering when it seemed she was set to escalate especially after being featured in one of the Royal Ballet films and, without wishing to speculate, I can guess at the frustration and disappointment this may well cause her, although you'd never guess it from her smiling ease on stage.

Director of The Royal Ballet Kevin O’Hare today announces promotions, leavers and joiners for The Royal Ballet’s 2019/20 Season.

I wouldn't say I have doubts with regard to the technique and expressive qualities of some other Soloists: James Hay, Fumi Kaneko and Yasmine Naghdi all have an excellent technique and expressive qualities ( Naghdi's Olga one of the best I have ever seen, also an outstanding Balanchine technique, and danced a lovely debut in "Symphonic Variations" alongside Nunez and Muntagirov).

I think if Choe were to have been appointed it would have happened after she replaced Osipova in Beauty and the fact that Odette/Odile did not come her way despite a plethora of cast changes would seem to confirm that she has gone as far as she is likely to go in terms of promotion, I'm not quite sure when the new Swan Lake is due but if it is in a couple of seasons time, ungallantly, it probably might also be said that time had passed in terms of that particular debut. Well, perhaps a bit, but I don't really think that Rojo, Cojocaru and Galeazzi could all have been expected to leave at more or less the same time. Also Akane Takada, seems a firm favourite at the Royal Ballet after her debut in Swan Lake, so she might be promoted to Principal alongside Alexander Campbell maybe? Zucchetti does seem to be favoured by the present management. However, that is improving so I have high hopes. But sadly it does seem that Choe is not to be promoted, as much as audiences love her! Though my main hope is to see Cuthbertson back on stage soon! I predict that Hayward will be the next principal at the RB unless a female principal is recruited from outside in the near future which is, arguably, necessary given the number of times that guest female principals have been brought in this year.

The Royal Ballet School holds auditions across the UK and internationally. What about Matthew Ball or Nicol Edmund? I could seem him as Colas too... Francesca Hayward is the most gifted but I think it's too soon for Principal, I have doubts about most of the other soloists with regard to either technique or expressive qualities, the dancer I would promote would be Alexander Campbell. Gary Avis will continue to perform as a Principal Character Artist with The Royal Ballet. Carlos Acosta is about to retire soon, which leaves a gap in the principal ranks and Deirdre Chapman also retired this season, leaving a gap in the first soloists too!
