Ballet: Another Swede takes charge

Scandinavians seem to be everywhere at the moment, but for Matz Skoog, returning to English National Ballet as artistic director is like coming home.

Nadine Meisner in The Independent

Quote:
Matz Skoog is Swedish, smallish, spruce and quiet, with a civil-servant's steel-rimmed spectacles and a pleasant round face only slightly pudgier since his dancing days. As English National Ballet's incoming artistic director, he is the antithesis of his predecessor, Derek Deane, the tall, confident loud-mouth whose controversial sound-bites kept the company in the news.

I should congratulate Skoog on his appointment, except that I have this mental image of a man stepping through a door into a giant blazing furnace.

<B>British ballet savior to return home</B> <P>By STEPHANIE BUNBURY in The Age on the return of ENB's Executive Director Carole Mc Phee to her native Australia.<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>One thing Carole McPhee won't miss about London is the hay fever. We are talking sometime around the official beginning of English summer; she is wheezing and sneezing like some sort of Heath Robinson contraption in between trying to organise the English National Ballet's coming tour of Australia, and the dry heat of Adelaide is looking like a good alternative. Luckily, after 11 years as head honcho at one of Britain's top ballet companies, she is going home.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><BR><A HREF="http://www.theage.com.au/entertainment/2001/07/16/FFXNL7CP5PC.html" TARGET=_blank><B>more...</B></A>
