Fredmann didn't slam the door until Colorado Ballet repaid a $25,000 loan he had made to the company. Immediately upon receiving the money owed, he completely severed his relationship.
As a longtime donor to Colorado Ballet, I am still awaiting any contact from Colorado Ballet to advise what the changes mean to the company. Keeping donors in the dark is not a good way to get them back onboard and insure the financial future!

And what happens to the company this year -- as a mid-year shift, will they still perform his Nutcracker, or do they need to find a substitute?

The plan at this point is to perform Fredmann's Nutcracker and Cinderella for a fee and Fredmann's approval of casting. The details can only come to light slowly. It is a sad and shocking episode in regional ballet in the USA, yet one that has been repeated many times. Hopefully one day the ballet boards and artists will one day be on an equal footing and be able to work together. :bash:

You sound like you have inside information and I won't push, but I do hope that at some point the basic details of the saga comes out, especially if the company wants to move beyond this mess and continue to function.
