Katherine Brown has been hired by New York City Ballet into a new executive director position that will oversee all non-artistic matters; the position will report directly to the board and will be charged with reducing expenses, solving the deficit problem, increasing revenue and attracting younger audiences.

It's about time they created this position. I am a firm believer in the importance of checks-and-balances in a ballet company, or any artistic company really. It is essential that there is someone of equal rank to the Artistic Director who can say NO without fear of retribution.

Interesting. It looks like they are trying to make ballet more accessible, less of an ivory tower. I think it's a good trend.

Ouch. This could get ugly. Though it sounds like the unions are saying what unions always say when in negotiations such as this.

Interesting. So I guess they don't want their dancers releasing company secrets and embarassing pictures on Facebook.

I am glad to hear they have come to a settlement. There have been problems brewing in that company for a while. Hopefully this will be a start to getting them all back on track.
