AD Kathryn Bennetts to step down

3 posts in this topic

A press release from the Royal Ballet of Flanders hints at a less-than-amicable parting:

"Following the board meeting on Monday 23rd January, Ms. Bennetts was offered the artistic leadership of this company for one final season (2012/ 2013) and within the current available budget. Kathryn Bennetts has informed the board of her decision that she will only be available as Artistic Director until the end of her current contract on June 30, 2012."

Her tenure at RBF has been marked by controversy; she's mounted new Forsythe works there (which don't always go down well with balletomanes).

Thanks so much for the link -- I didn't realize she was involved in that AD retreat.
