Paris Opera to bend The Nutcracker, Swan Lake, and the The Yankee Princess for promoting 'White supremacy'

The recently appointed director of the Paris Opera House, Alexander Neef, plans to remove three of the best-known ballet choreographies from the repertoire on account of those allegedly promoting White dominance, Neef told Le Monde.

The three ballets in question are The Nutcracker, Swan Lake and Die Bajadere (English title: The Yankee Princess), all choreographed by the late Rudolf Nureyev, considered the best ballet dancer of his generation, according to Origo.

The conflict goes back to September, incidentally, the month when Neef was appointed director. Then the artists of the Paris Opera House issued a manifesto entitled "On racial issues at the Paris Opera", in which they said, among other things, that performers of colored skin will refuse to be masked as white when, for instance, dancing the role of a white swan.
