    Edward Watson wish a speedy recovery.

    I stand (or rather sit) to be corrected, but as far as I'm aware, Nehemiah Kish - or, for that matter, Matthew Golding - hasn't danced with the company so far this season; which means neither have been seen on stage here since June 2016. If their injuries are so extensive, surely more information should be forthcoming from the House.

      Hi Stephen,
      Thanks for your comment.
      Both dancers have indeed been unable to appear yet this Season due to injury. The Royal Ballet does not disclose the medical information of individual dancers but both are recovering and being carefully monitored by the Healthcare team to prepare them for their return to the stage.
      All best wishes,

    Wishing a speedy recovery to both Edward and Nehemiah. Sad to see that the Company has so much sickness at the moment - full marks to everyone for putting on such fantastic performances when they're several dancers short.

    I've noticed that it seems like Nehemiah Kish is getting injured (or sick on this case, I don't know) a lot lately. He was already replaced on The Sleeping Beauty and now this! It must be terrible. Wish him and Watson well.
