Ballet de Santiago's Teatro Municipal burned down earlier today in Chile. I posted the following on facebook:

Dreadful news just now from Ballet de Santiago in Chile, that the Teatro Municipal has burned down. I was privileged to have spent five days there a year and a half ago while interviewing Marcía Haydée, BdS's artistic director, and Richard Cragun, her renowned partner at Stuttgart Ballet of several decades ago. The theater was designed in collaboration with the French architect Charles Garnier, of Palais Garnier fame. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Garnier_(architect).

Wouldn't it be a fitting gesture for companies around the globe to open their stages to these dancers for programs to raise money for the repairs? In a climate where ballet is getting headlines for Black Swan (the movie) intrigues, backstabbing career moves, and acid-throwing, wouldn't such an act of solidarity and support be a much better way to present the art form to the public?
