The globally acclaimed choreographer Liam Scarlett died at the age of 35, a year after leaving the Royal Ballet amid accusations of sexual conduct.
His death was announced by his family in a statement that included no details on the cause of death.
Mr. Scarlett, who was a dancer with the Royal Ballet before becoming its artist in residence in 2012, was suspended in August 2019 by the company after sexual harassment allegations against students at the Royal Ballet School. After a seven-month independent inquiry, Mr. Scarlett resigned in March 2020, citing "no issues to pursue."
Despite, Vayamos al Diablo, Consolations and Liebestraum, Asphodel Meadows, and a new production of Swan Lake were among his works for The Royal Ballet.
