The dancer, choreographer and artistic director has shown great ambition and had an astonishing impact at the company
Right now, Tamara Rojo is putting the finishing touches to the first ballet she has created for English National Ballet – a new version of Raymonda – but it will also be her last. She announced on Tuesday that she is leaving the company, where she is artistic director and lead principal, to take up the artistic directorship at San Francisco Ballet.
It’s a blow for Britain’s ballet scene, where the sharply intelligent Rojo has been an innovative leader and an articulate advocate for the art form, turning ENB from a respected but unexciting touring company into a news-making organisation.
