San Francisco Ballet has just hired Tamara Rojo, 47, as its artistic director.

She is presently head of English National Ballet.

The Spanish ex-dancer will be SFB’s first female chief.


  • Elizabeth Owen says:

    Oh that’s a shame she will be missed a very talented dancer.

  • Michel Lemieux says:

    ABT is known for its athleticism, the Kirov for its precision….and SF Ballet for its management!

  • Paul R. says:

    Rojo is an extremely capable director and I’m very excited to see what she will bring to the SF company. Helgi Tomasson has been inspirational but understandably after 37 years a replacement was inevitable.
