Interesting that the article didn't mention a single woman as a possible candidate.

I would like to see Thibault grasp the crown but I fear it won't happen under Madame Lefevre. If it's going to happen for Thibault, I think it would take a Hilaire, Legris or Le Riche to make it happen just before retirement.
I wonder if Mme Lefevre will promote Emmanuel Thibault before her departure?
The person who has to hope that he will become an etoile in the next two years is Vincent Chaillet, who appears more at home in the contemporary repertory Madame Lefevre favors and might be out-of-luck if the company reverts to a more strictly classical repertory under someone like Legris. (He has a big opportunity coming soon as the promo poster that is out for Marie-Agnes Gillot's choreographic debut suggests he is the featured male.)

Forsythe was mentioned, and so were Ratmansky and Millepied, but not as being "in the running", just the journalist's (bizarre, in my opinion) wish list of people who should apply or should be asked to apply.
You have to admit they are great fun to speculate about!
