RDB - 11 DANCERS CUT

Recommended Posts

News is filtering out that eleven dancers are being cut from the Royal Danish Ballet with four retirements and seven not. This means that about 13% of the dancers have been cut.

 

Of the more senior dancers, Jean-Lucien Massot and Jette Buchwald are retiring. Andrew Bowman and Lesley Culver are amongst those listed as not.

 

I am so shocked about Andrew Bowman. I have very much enjoyed his performances and particularly remember a glorious performance as Des Grieux a couple of years ago (with Caroline Cavallo as Manon).

 

Bellafigural has posted a link to a Danish article on twitter. I used google translate which gave a bizarre interpretation but at least I could get the gist.

The Royal Opera in Copenhagen also had to cut both headcount and productions, and as a result the director, Keith Warner, has today resigned after less than one year in the job.
