Prix de Lausanne winner Marco Masciari to come to the Royal Ballet

Recommended Posts

He’s just put this on his Instagram account. Presumably as the Prix de Lausanne Apprentice 2020/21.

Good news. Everyone must have made him offers.

So a few other winners will be joining RBS, and Matei Holeleu will be joining ENB as apprentice. 

 

Last year's winner Sumina Sasaki (currently on apprenticeship)  wrote on her blog that she will be joining RB as artist next season.

The RB's Aud Jebsen dancers also know which of them will be joining The Royal Ballet next season but are not allowed to say yet! So Sumina has rather 'jumped the gun'.

So glad he's going to Royal Ballet. 

 

I see that Matei Holeleu is going to English National Ballet which is good.  I liked his performances of the Paquita variation and thought he had panache in the jumps.  

 

I wonder why Yuyan Wang has forfeited her apprenticeship.  Does that happen often?  I thought she also danced well.

I've noticed this happening in prior years too with some of the winners.  I’ve always assumed those candidates get company offers that aren’t eligible for the prize?  Or is it some other reason?

Some years the reason has been given and it has been because the candidate received an offer from another company. Other times, the reason has not been given but I assume it's for the same reason. Maybe the PDL don't want to promote the reasons, saving the spotlight for the prize recipients, but I don't know.

Am very pleased he has chosen The Royal Ballet  School.... an appealing young dancer.

Whoops ...he looked so young! Automatically thought of him as a final year student 🙄

Even better then if he is actually going to be in the Company.
