“Gennadi Nedvigin was a paragon of finesse, frequently landing without a sound on one leg and sustaining that position with apparently effortless assurance.”

New York Times

 

“For Nedvigin, Franz was simply a carrer triumph, notable for purity of style, antic spirit and elegant showmanship.”

SAN FRANCISCO, Thursday, February 25, 2016—San Francisco Ballet Principal Dancer Gennadi Nedvigin has been appointed artistic director of Atlanta Ballet after nearly 20 years with SF Ballet. He will succeed John McFall, who announced his retirement seven months ago and will step down from the position in June. A farewell performance is planned, with details to be announced and his final performance will take place during the Company’s run of Cranko’s Onegin. Nedvigin will begin working with Atlanta Ballet on August 1, following its 2015-16 season and will be one of three former SF Ballet principal dancers who currently lead a major ballet company in the United States, including Mikko Nissinen at Boston Ballet and Ashley Wheater at Joffrey Ballet.

 

SF Ballet Artistic Director & Principal Choreographer Helgi Tomasson said, “Gennadi is an incredibly talented dancer who—after 19 years with the company—is still performing at a very high level and I am very proud of him. I have no doubt that his professionalism, coupled with his passion and respect for the art form will make him a wonderful leader for Atlanta Ballet.”

“We are thrilled to welcome Gennadi to Atlanta Ballet,” said Allen W. Nelson, chair of Atlanta Ballet’s board of trustees. “This is a pivotal time for our organization, and we are confident that Gennadi will be a leader that can build on the rich legacies of John McFall, Robert Barnett, and Ms. Dorothy Alexander, but also carve out his own legacy within our organization.”
