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.
