2 posts in this topic

They're early - we usually have to wait until after the tour! It's been on the ROH website since Thursday apparently, but here's the link:

Promotions (with effect from the beginning of the 2005/06 season)

Edward Watson is promoted to Principal

Gary Avis is promoted to Principal Character Artist

Jose Martin is promoted to First Soloist

Victoria Hewitt, Bethany Keating, Natasha Oughtred, Gemma Sykes, Rupert Pennefather, Johannes Stepanek and Joshua Tuifua are promoted to Soloists.

Laura McCulloch, Paul Kay and Steven McRae are promoted to First Artists.

Joiners (with effect from the beginning of the 2005/06 season)

Demelza Parish, Gemma Pitchley-Gale, Sabina Westcombe, Xander Parish, Liam Scarlett (graduates of the Royal Ballet School) and Vito Mazzeo (graduate of La Scala Ballet School) join as Artists.

Kate Shipway joins as a Company Pianist

Marcelo Ribeiro will join as Company Masseur on a 3 months contract

Leavers

Marie Doutrepont will be leaving, at her own request, at the end of this current season.

Philip Gammon retires at the end of this season but will return next season as a Principal Guest Pianist

Luis Cano, Company Masseur, will be leaving , at his own request, at the end of this current season.

Am pleased - I don't think any of the promotions are a surprise given that they've been a long time coming or are obvious up-and-comers. Congrats to them all :wink:
