It is with a very sad heart that I post on Ballet Alert that the great Impresario Paul Szilard passed away on Friday July 26, 2013 in New York City. He was 100 years old. I hope the NY Times will also recognize this accomplished and dedicated man who was a key figure in many very important world wide tours. 

Personally, Mr. Szilard was one of the first to believe in my endeavor to start the Ailina Dance Archives and graciously donated photographs and music scores from his collection. Although our conversations were kept short, I cherished every second that I was able to spend with him. He will be greatly missed. 

Although, I know Mr. Szilard will continue to keep a watchful eye on the dance scene from the best view in the universe.
