Daniil Simkin joins Staatsballett Berlin

I am so upset about Simkin's departure.  Since this is effective for 2018/2019, I am keeping my fingers crossed that he dances a full 2018 MET season.  I was looking at the Staatballett Berlin website, and it looks like their spring seasons overlap, so I don't know how much he would/could be available to dance at ABT.

I'm disappointed as well. He's really matured as an artist in recent years. He was always exciting to watch, of course.

 

And he has developed a beautiful classical ballet line, which he was using to great effect, i.e., the Lensky adagio in Onegin and the Boy in Whipped Cream. I will miss that from him most of all.

I agree. I am very happy for him, but will miss him very much. Like others have said, I doubt he'll perform much w/ ABT going forward (he'll probably be more like a guest artist during the Met season). His acting, partnering, and artistry has improved so much and I have loved watching him grow from a pyro-technique wiz kid into a more complete artist. But, I suppose the silver lining is that it'll open up opportunities for others, most likely Arron Scott and Gabe Shayer.
