A story on the most recent changes at Miami City Ballet by Jan Sjostrom in The Palm Beach Daily News.

The new strategic plan, due at the end of the year, will include several recommendations aimed at putting the company on track, such as more large-scale artistic projects, increased marketing that focuses on building the ballet’s reputation rather than selling tickets, stronger community outreach and more diversified fundraising.

Expect more attention to be paid to Palm Beach. Eight new members from Palm Beach County have been recruited to the company’s 34-member board since October 2011.

A new production center for the Australian Ballet is under construction.

It will be the company’s first dedicated space for the design and creation of production elements, from wigs to large-scale set pieces.

The purpose-built site will also house its archive, which includes the pumpkin carriage from the 1973 production of Sleeping Beauty, the flying goose from The Nutcracker (2007) and more than 29,000 ballet costumes.


Related.

The centre has been built with a $2 million federal grant for the fit-out, given to commemorate the ballet's 50th anniversary.
The federal government will also provide more than $5 million annually to support the company's operations.

American Repertory Ballet presents an "Emerging Artists Showcase."


The creation of these works has been made possible, in part, through a space grant from American Repertory Ballet’s Emerging Artists Residency Program. ARB has provided the participating artists with use of their studios at Princeton Ballet School which the artists have used to create new work and coordinate the production of a showcase. In addition, ARB is working with the artists to help co-promote these performances.

Thanks to miliosr for the heads up: Laura Cappelle reviews Paris Opera Ballet in "Serenade, "Agon," and "The Prodigal Son," with Défilé for Financial Times.

Ludmila Pagliero and Myriam Ould-Braham, soaked in the applause for the first time following their promotions last season, and they went on to give perhaps the most vividly drawn performances of the evening. Pagliero is just starting to revel in the expressive possibilities of her considerable technique, and in Serenade she let her instinctive, full-bodied musicality speak for her. The petite, delicate Ould-Braham, a long-time audience darling, displayed a new-found aplomb in the second pas de trois from Agon to match the natural perfume of her dancing. The coming season is theirs to dominate, and many will be watching.
