Both Dutch national ballet and royal ballet announched that Matthew Golding will be a principal with the royal ballet in March.

He'll make his debut in "Sleeping Beauty" with Osipova on 27 March 2014 after joining the Royal Ballet in February.

From the Royal Ballet:

From Dutch National Ballet:

He'll be a regular Guest Artist at Dutch National Ballet starting in 2014-15.

Kudos to the Royal Ballet for getting him to join!

Between his performances with the Dutch National Ballet and Royal Ballet and guest appearances with English National Ballet and the National Ballet of Canada, Golding is going to be very busy.

There should be an independent investigation how did ABT let him get away.

Yup, and to figure out why ABT didn't do much with Golding during the six years that it had him.

Exactly, or he still might be there.

 

ABT has a tendency to let it's dancers rot on the vine.

ABT has a tendency to let it's dancers rot on the vine.

 

And then to bring in lesser dancers either with foreign names or who look and act like "bad" boys and girls.

 

Example: Jared Matthews was breathtaking in Lensky's difficult solo this past spring season. But is he going to be the next male dancer to be promoted? I hope so, but I fear not.

 

And then there's the exquisite Stella Abrera. I'm still waiting...and waiting...and waiting for her Giselle.

 

Back to topic: Matthew Golding was a terrible loss for ABT. As they say, it's deja vu all over again.
