Assis Carreiro leaves Royal Ballet Flanders:

Friday, 01 August 2014

assis-carreiro-credit-sylvaine-poitau---compressedKunsthuis Opera Vlaanderen Royal Ballet Flanders has “decided to end its professional relationship with Ms Assis Carreiro” as of July 28, 2014.

Carreiro (pictured) took over the directorship of the Antwerp-based company in 2012, following the acrimonious departure of previous director Kathryn Bennetts. Bennetts had clashed with the Flemish culture minister, Joke Schauvliege, over plans to amalgamate the Antwerp opera and ballet companies under a single director.

Two years on, the general director, Lena De Meerleer, announced that “All future productions, including Onegin and Don Quixote, will be prepared and performed with all our custom care and skill. Our audience has always been supportive. We have all it takes to continue on our path to represent classical ballet in all its forms and possibilities in Flanders and abroad.”

A new artistic director is to be appointed as soon as possible. Pol Bamelis, chairman of the board of directors, said: “Kunsthuis Opera Vlaanderen Royal Ballet Flanders is ready for the future. Royal Ballet Flanders and Opera Vlaanderen have merged into a strong house with a clear added value in Flanders, and abroad. We will ensure a well-considered decision is made with regards to the succession of Ms Carreiro.”

Neither De Meerleer nor Bamelis had any comment on the end of Carreiro’s tenure.

    I do not know if it's just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering
    issues with your blog. It seems like some of the written text on your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please
    provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This could be a issue with my web browser because I've had this happen previously.
    Many thanks
