SFB Meet the Artist Interviews (audio podcasts)

Recommended Posts

Just a reminder: SFB (like many ballet companies) holds "Meet the Artist" interviews with various company members, visiting choreographers, etc. almost every week of the season. And these interviews are made available online as audio "podcasts". Which really just means you can click the link in your browser and listen to the interview. Pasts season archived interviews are also available. Visit this page for 2015 podcasts:


This season some of the particpating artists are (so far), Mathilde Froustey, Joseph Walsh, Tiit Helimets, Myles Thatcher, who just choreographed his first complete ballet for the company, and Christopher Stowell. I especially recommend listening to past interviews with répétiteurs, costumers and stage managers - those are especially fascinating.
