The Paris Opera has announced the resignation of Laurent Hilaire

The Paris Opera has announced the resignation of Laurent Hilaire (Jury member and twice laureate of Benois de la Danse) who went on to become the principal maitre de ballet and the associate director of Brigitte Lefevre (Jury member and laureate of Benois de la Danse). The French media suggested that the resignation fallowed the luck of understanding between Hilaire and Benjamin Millepied (Benois de la Danse nominee) who is becoming the director of the company the next October. Despite the agreement reached before that Hilaire remained on his position, Clotilde Vayer, premiere danseuse during the “Nureyev's era” and one of the maitresses de ballet, has been named the associate director and principal maitre de ballet. Her place will be given to Benois de la Danse laureate Aurelie Dupont after her farewell performance the next May in Histoire de Manon by Kenneth MacMillan.
