Guiseppe Piccone leacing ABT
Posted 22 June 2001 - 06:01 AM
Yet another dancer leaving ABT: Today's NYTimes review of "Swan Lake" mentioned that he is leaving ABT after this season. Looks like ABT will have to promote or import if they want to keep the same number of soloists and principals.

He is one of the best dancers in the company! :eek:

(I have to admit, though, that I'm usually one of the first that finds ballet gossip in the lobbies intriguing!)

Gossip is undeniably fun, and some rumors actually turn out to be true, but we try to put up yellow light signs because it is so easy to be spontaneous on the internet, and one innocent "so and so left" post can lead to fascinating speculation on the state of mind and body of all concerned

I'd like to second the comments that have been made about posting rumors.... none of us knows what really happens except the ones directly involved. A lot of us hear things, but we really should be careful posting "juicy" gossip because it seems like fun. We don't know the true circumstances, motivations, and all the other factors that present a "true, full" picture of the situation. Summing up what I'm sure was a sensitive situation in a juicy gossip sentence doesn't do any of the artists justice and doesn't present the full story.
I haven't heard where Picone will go, but I hope it's somewhere where I can continue to see the level of dancing I saw from him this year.

Should anyone wish to discuss Picone's DANCING without speculating on his current, past or future employment, please start another thread.
