Changes at the Ballet National de Marseille
Posted 18 November 2002 - 04:03 AM
It says that Marie-Claude Pietragalla will leave the administrative direction of the Ballet National de Marseille, but will keep its artistic direction. The new administrative director, Marc Sadaoui, is someone form the Ministry of Culture and had been working with the company since May.

Actually I don't know how the other French companies work- I don't know if there is only one director for everything, or an administrative and an artistic one... At the Paris Opera, there used to be a "directeur de la danse" and an "administrateur de la danse", but when Brigitte Lefevre switched from "administrateur" (when Dupond was directeur) to "directeur" there was no "administrateur" any longer. But also there didn't seem to be a clear difference between the two jobs, for example I've read that Jean-Albert Cartier, who was the administrateur at the beginning of Dupond's directorship, has insisted on staging some Massine and Nijinska works.
In Marseille, Pietregalla was so far the director (administrative and artistic) of the company, and also the director of the school, she choreographed several works for them, danced in most productions, and also performed from time to time with other companies or alone with a program of solos.

Thanks for the recap of what happened in Paris, Estelle. I'd forgotten that.
