Boston Ballet's woes

4 posts in this topic

I have been following, mostly thru the daily Links, Boston Ballet's financial difficulties and the recent decision to layoff 11 dancers (9 from the corps).

(see March 14 links)

I don't know but surmise that although BB may offer dancers some of the better dance salaries in the country, these salaries would surely pale in light of the executive salaries quoted in the article - 200,000 and upwards....

This is probably a very naive perspective, but I just don't understand why some of these salaries aren't reduced and some of the dancers saved. What good is it to have a high paid executive when your very foundation is weakened - the dancers who utlitmately produce the "product" that BB markets?

And who are the principals that aren't returning next year?
