After having pulled Alina Cojocaru from her May 28th and 29th performances of Symphony in C due to her ongoing injury, the Royal Ballet has today announced that it is pulling her from her June 8th performance. Really? She's unable to perform the 2nd Movement Adagio and a short coda, but she's going to dance four acts of Swan Lake here less than two weeks later? Are we supposed to have sympathy for her when she limps around and dumbs down the steps with perfectly upturned eyebrows while our own brilliant and capable Sarah Lane sits on the sidelines waiting for a chance to dance?
Jeeze Louise. Could it get any more pathetic at ABT?
