“Edwaard is incredibly deserving of this new opportunity. I am so excited for him but, of course, sad that at the end of this season he won’t be part of our daily lives.
I am proud to have helped lead the search process that brought Edwaard to Columbus and could not be more proud of the work the Board and the BalletMet team have done to support Edwaard’s Artistic Vision over the last 11 seasons. Edwaard is a very special artist and leader who has made BalletMet a better organization.
We are in a strong place to recruit our next Artistic Director. We are excited for what the future holds and BalletMet will immediately start an international search for our next Artistic Director led by former Board Chair Susan Douglass. Our goal is to have that talent in place by next summer.”
– Sue Porter, Executive Director of BalletMet.
