Bolshoi cancels ballet
MOSCOW: The Bolshoi Theatre has postponed the world premiere of Nureyev, a ballet about famous Russian dancer, weeks after its director Kirill Serebrennikov was questioned as a witness in a fraud investigation.
The theatre said it would hold a briefing about the postponement today.
In May, the home and office of Serebrennikov was searched by investigators, and he was questioned as a witness into alleged embezzlement of state funds. – Reuters
