NOTES ABOUT THE COMPANY

With the start of a new season in Stuttgart, Reid Anderson has announced the promotion of Ivan Gil Ortega (Spain) and Jason Reilly (Canada) from soloists to principal dancers. A new addition to the principal roster will be Maria Eichwald (Germany), who has previously danced as a principal for the Bayerisches Nationalballett in Munich. Eichwald has been seen in Stuttgart in November 2002 in the role of Tatjana in Onegin and will be joining the company in January 2004. Stuttgart principal dancer Julia Krämer will also be returning to the stage during the 2003/2004 season, following a break due to the birth of her first child in September 2002. Another mother in the company, Yseult Lendvai, is expecting her second child and will be ending her career as a professional dancer. As previously noted, principal Roland Vogel has ended his stage career in order to take on the new job of ballet instructor at the renowned Akademie de Danse Classique Princesse Grace in Monte Carlo.

Further changes at the soloist level are as follows: Dresden-born Katja Wünsche and Jiri Jelinek from the Czech Republic will advance from demi-soloist to soloists. Soloist Robert Conn will be leaving the company to dedicate himself to other projects.

The following Corps de Ballet members will be leaving Stuttgart next season: Oksana Burjak, Julia Livanova, Linda Lutz, Sara Palacios, Francesca Podini, Irina Schlaht, Vanessa Valdueza Tauroni, Svetlana Tolstopiatova as well as Wieslaw Dudek and Adrian Robos. New additions to the Corps de Ballet are Nathalie Guth, Tiziana Minio, Krisztina Pazar, Ana Lucia Souza, Lenneke Vos and Viktor Sherbakov. Also entering into the Corps are the Apprentices Christina Burnell, Jessica Truesdale and Sébastien Galtier. Newcomers to the Suttgart Ballet are the following five apprentices: Maria Boumpouli, Allessandra Tognoloni, Melena Buschujewa, Hyo-Jun Kang and Marianne Illig.

In addition, there will be further changes to the staff for the upcoming season. Former principal dancer and ballet master Tamas Detrich has been appointed Artistic Associate to the Director, continuing his tasks as ballet master. After gaining experience during previous seasons, demi-soloist Rolando D'Alesio will take on the job of ballet master in addition to his role as dancer in the company. Director Reid Anderson is especially pleased to welcome three popular former dancers, Egon Madsen, Krzysztof Nowogrodzki and Ivan Cavallari, who will serve as guest teachers during the season.

Lulu - Stuttgart Ballet
By Larry L Lash for The Financial Times


Lulu, Christian Spuck's first full-length ballet, starts out so strong, it's almost too good to be true.

The Stuttgart Ballet's young resident choreographer successfully mixes elements of Tanztheater, a striking modern ballet vocabulary, and enough narrative (freely adapted from the Wedekind play on which Alban Berg based his opera) to appease traditionalists.

By LARRY L LASH
The Financial Times

How to celebrate Balanchine in one performance? His catalogue of works numbers 425, of which more than 70 remain extant. Stuttgart's salute appears daunting: three challenging masterpieces and none of the crowd-pleasers which Balanchine expertly juggled.

With ballets brilliant and banal, the Stuttgart Ballet shows why Stravinsky has inspired more choreographers than any other composer.
