David Bintley appointed Artistic Director

David Bintley, artistic director of Birmingham Royal Ballet is to tak up an additional post as Artistic Director of the New National Theatre Ballet Company, Tokyo. The appointment is for an initial three-year period commencing in 2010, until then he will become Artistic Advisor to the Company.

This will enhance the excellent relationship the two companies already enjoy following the successful staging of Bintley's Carmina Burana (Tokyo 2005), and the creation of a new full length ballet Aladdin, due to premiere at the New National Theatre on 15th November 2008. Birmingham Royal Ballet also had a very successful tour to Japan earlier in 2008.

In a statement, the New National Theatre said:

'David Bintley brings his excellent experience as an Artistic Director, his extraordinary talent which is acknowledged throughout the world and a deep respect from the dancers and the theatre. We look forward to him bringing more of his works into the Company whilst making full use of his skills and knowledge as an artistic programme. Under his direction, we look forward to seeing individuals at all levels of the Company grow as they face new and exciting challenges.'
