Barry Hughson leaving Boston Ballet

Boston Ballet announced Friday that its executive director, Barry Hughson, will leave in January to become executive director of the National Ballet of Canada.

Mikko Nissinen, Boston Ballet’s artistic director, said Hughson’s decision “came as a surprise,” though he knew the National Ballet of Canada, based in Toronto, was looking for an executive director to replace Kevin Garland, who announced her retirement last year.
