BW Posted December 17, 2004 Report Share Posted December 17, 2004 For those of you who may have missed this on yesterday's Links forum on Ballet Talk: Ballet Pacifica names Ethan Stiefel as new AD Stiefel had not been looking for a job, but was approached about the opening by his agent, Peter Diggins, who is a longtime friend of the company's new executive director, Thomas Gulick. Stiefel will officially assume the title of artistic director in September, but his work has already begun. His first hires represent another remarkable development: Stiefel hasnamed ABT principal dancer Amanda McKerrow and former ABT soloist John Gardner, McKerrow's husband, as his seconds-in-command; their exact titles are still being negotiated. They will oversee company operations when Stiefel is out of town. Another interesting turn of events on the West coast. It would be interesting to hear from you who know this company - what your reactions are, etc.? Quote Link to comment
