Frankfurt Ballet Folding?

5 posts in this topic

I just heard on the radio this morning that Frankfurt Ballet is folding...has anyone heard this? Please forgive me if this is false info as I heard only the end of a news report...Anyone?

That was announced more than a year ago. The city of Frankfurt was unable to continue funding. (That's the short version.) There was discussion of it here when it happened and links to newspaper articles, but they may no longer be on line.

The last thing I read was that Forsythe was relocating to New York and would be concentrating on film and dance. He's doing a new work for ABT this year.

(Anyone who can add to that, please do. I write from memory, so if it's dance and video rather than film and dance, please make the correction.)

Alexandra...Yes I found the article and so sorry for this post. I'm still perplexed at why I heard this on our member supported radio station this morning as the report ended with concern and sadness for the ballet co. and it's dancers and that Forsythe will undoubtedly find another position. Really need to keep up with the European Companies!

Probably because the company is currently performing in New York, and will be on a farewell tour all this year, so in that sense, it's timely.

It is difficult to keep up with everything! (Read Links every day, and that helps a bit :) )

Yes, very timely indeed and thanks for the update on the farewell tour. I usually start my day with 'Links' and a cup of coffee and they both are quite addicting! ~ Tango~
