He will become a Twyla Tharp evangelist, staging her works for ballet companies.

Are any BAers familiar with the Company and his tenure and could shed some light about what this might mean for KCB?

I can tell you that Dracula and Cinderella in the same season would have never happened under Whitener. Story ballets are not really his thing.

Based on doing the Ballet Alert! calendar and seeing KCB's rep over time, yeah.
