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
