Natalie Back To LA

By | Nat-news

 
There was a press conference and an official announcement today, the Benjamin is leaving the Paris Ballet in July. Benjamin will be returning to work in L.A. and I presume that means the family will be heading back as well. The hand-wringing when she left L.A. really bemused me so I’m not looking for the same regarding Paris. Personally, I couldn’t care less where she lives.

Speaking of not caring, Benjamin was pretty clear about his reason for leaving. He sounds more than a little frustrated by the experience.

“I want to regain my freedom and I want to create,” he said. “I’ve been honored to be given the opportunity to work at the Opera and with the dancers, but this job, as it exists today, is not something I want.”

Ben Leaving Paris Ballet

Well that didn’t last long. Benjamin has only been with the Paris Ballet for a little over a year but that is now coming to an end. A press conference tomorrow will formally announce his departure and one can only wonder if this means that the family might head back to the states. For what it is worth, I’ve heard that it is indeed Ben’s frustration with the slow administrative side of the Paris Ballet than, as has already been suggested, Natalie wanting to return home.

Via translation…

The establishment was recently added, because his name boosted sales. And because Benjamin Millepied like to create for the dancers of the company and provides plenty of do it next season.

It could also remain as resident choreographer after the break, while defending the idea of ​​bringing major dance companies in the twenty-first century. His departure would weaken the turbulent reign of Stéphane Lissner. For the French dancer and choreographer of the New York City Ballet star and husband of actress Natalie Portman, has given to the opera glamor, talent and patrons. Never gala has reported as much as that given for the opening of Ballet in September. Neither has any dance director has managed to allocate this money to ballet. As for the number of creations in the program, we went from two to ten per year.
