ABT soloist Maria Riccetto will join Julio Bocca's company, Ballet Nacional del Sodre, in Uruguay as a Primera Bailarina Invitada (Guest Principal Ballerina) for a year beginning August 1st. Thereafter she will return to ABT.
Congratulations to beautiful Maria. But Honey, don't come back without an ABT principal contract. McKenzie is screwing with the senior soloists, trying to clear the way for lesser dancers and lesser guest artists while at the same time complaining that he doesn't have enough corps dancers and has to insert student dancers from the school. He's screwing with the senior soloists big time. Walk out and don't look back. You are too beautiful, too talented, and too wasted by ABT.
