Annual Concours - March 2nd & 3rd in Paris Opera Ballet Posted March 22, 2018 Do we know if she's resigned or it's a congé sans solde ? In any case, she has to look out for herself, though I'm sad to see her go. I also am saddened and frustrated at the lack of support for classical ballet here, since I have little to no interest in contemporary dance. It's interesting to contrast the dearth of classical ballet with the wealth of classical music we have. For example, when it comes to pianists everyone plays in Paris (or wants to), while many famous pianists no longer bother to play in NYC. I guess you can't have it all.
