Here's the rest of the quote from Julio Bocca about his desire to direct ABT. It didn't appear in the first article to which we linked below on 5-17, but has surfaced in another online paper today. Previously, he said: "I do not say I do not like to lead the American Ballet, yes I would, but not in the near future."
He also apparently continued afterward to say:
"It is true that I would like to direct the ABT, a company that I know well and love, and where I danced for 20 years. "
Haglund underlined that important part.
Las Vegas odds heavily favor the worthless Board of Directors letting this opportunity slip through its hands, or even throwing it away.
