Promotions: Sakurai to Principal + 4 new soloists

Recommended Posts

Just back from the initial performance of the 3rd B'ville Festival. Immediately following tonight's performance, while on stage after bows, director Frank Andersen announced the promotion of Kristoffer Sakurai to Principal. Sakurai had just danced the role of Carelis in tonight (debut) in Kermesse in Bruges, about which I'll report later.

As if that were not enough of a surprise...

During the post-performance reception, Andersen announced the promotion of four corps members to Soloist:

Yao Wei

Susanne Grinder (tonight's Eleonora, Kermesse)

Izabela Sokolowka

David Kupinski

Congratulations to all!

Thank you, aspirant. At this morning's company class, we who had attended the reception were surprised and excited to hear about Sokolowska's promotion, too. Hurrah!

I've since corrected my original news to reflect this 4th promotion to soloist.
