ENB - article in The Times

Recommended Posts

The word digressed was used in the Guardian article:

 

"At the ENB’s annual press conference on Tuesday, Rojo, 43, digressed from speaking about the forthcoming season to address the concerns.At the ENB’s annual press conference on Tuesday, Rojo, 43, digressed from speaking about the forthcoming season to address the concerns."

 

I'm afraid I don't believe there is a more important issue in the ballet world at the moment, at least not in this country.  I consider the treatment of dancers and their continued welfare to be of the upmost importance.

I know the word "digressed" was used, MAB, my concern is the - to my mind totally unfounded - inferences you've drawn from it.  Unfortunately, I wasn't able to attend the press conference myself, given its timing and location, but I see no reason from what's written to interpret it as anything more than that the PC was called to announce the 2018-19 season, but Rojo went off-topic to address the other concerns, for whatever reason.  And I agree with you about dancer welfare, but unfortunately what's happened again is that the focus of any reporting has been on Rojo's personal life, not the allegations about the treatment of dancers, or next season's offerings.

It looks as if we are moving forward with an actual name now, that of Jose Martin, note that he was named by three different  sources. 

 

Without wanting to go further (and I am certainly not encouraging others to do so) Jose Martin's name appearing as a source for this story complexifies things, rather than simplifying them.

 

So, as I tried to do before, I would urge caution.

Gosh, some of those articles make rather grim reading about the morale at ballet companies. I hope for the dancers' sake that things are generally happier than they're painted.
