Ethan Stiefel Withdraws From Benjamin Millepied Performances at the Joyce

By Ben Mattison
01 Mar 2006

American Ballet Theatre star Ethan Stiefel has withdrawn from the upcoming Joyce Theater debut of Benjamin Millepied & Company, the company led by the New York City Ballet principal dancer.

Stiefel is suffering from "a recurring knee problem," according to a press release.

Stiefel was scheduled to appear opposite fellow ABT dancer Gillian Murphy in the world premiere of Millepied's Closer during the run, scheduled for March 14-19. Millepied himself will replace him in the role.

The program, which also includes world-premiere works by Luca Veggetti, Andonis Foniadakis, and Aszure Barton, is otherwise unchanged.

On March 15, the group will perform at a Joyce gala paying tribute to Jerome Robbins. It will include a guest performance by NYCB's Damian Woetzel and live accompaniment by Philip Glass.
