    So sad for David Hallberg. We wish him a very swift recovery. I saw Matthew Ball step up last week to dance Albrecht in Act II. He was marvelous. Audiences are in for a treat!

    Sorry that it's because of an injury but whoever has tickets is in for a treat. I saw Matthew ball in act 2 with osipova last Thursday and it was a wonderful partnership. I hope we will see them dance together more often in the future.

    So sorry to see that David Hallberg is still injured. My thoughts are with him for a speedy recovery.

    Very sad to miss David but Matt will do an excellent job (especially with a bit more notice!!)

    Ball did wonderfully stepping in after Hallberg's injury. We wish DH a speedy recovery.

    Poor David Hallberg. He does have a torrid time with injuries, and came all this way only to sustain another one.....

    Let's hope he recovers rapidly - a pulled calf muscle, I believe, so at least no bones broken - and can finally appear with the Royal.

    So sad to hear this, I bought tickets for both dates just to see David Hallberg, crying..,,, I am leaving London this Sat, don't know when I'll have the opportunity to see David again.

    Best wishes to David for a speedy recovery. Matty Ball will make an excellent Albrecht. A Prince-ipal in waiting?!

    I have just heard about change of the cast and what happened on 1st March. So sorry that David Hallberg had injury during the performance. We will enjoy Osipova - Ball cast tomorrow but so sorry we will not see David.
