Carolina Aguëro, who danced Aurora in all six of the Hamburg Ballet's performances of The Sleeping Beauty this spring, has been promoted to principal dancer.

Edvin Revazov, who created leading roles in John Neumeier's Death in Venice (Tadzio) and Parzival while still in the corps, has been promoted to soloist.

Former apprentices Marissa Jiménez, Anna-Lena Wieg and Matias Iaconianni have been promoted to the corps.

New dancers to the company include Israeli Ben Shitrit, who joins the corps, and three new apprentices: Mayo Arii from Japan, Yun-Su Park from Korea and Alexandr Trusch from Ukraine.

Principal Heather Jurgensen and soloist Niurka Moredo have retired, and corps members Anja Behrend and Percevale Perks have also left the company.

Just wanted to add -- Niurka Moredo has retired as a dancer, but will continue to work with the company as a ballet mistress.
