A Moscow court has added three months to the detention order against Kirill Serebrennikov, who is accused – for political reasons, his supporters say – of embezzlement..

The new order lasts to the end of July.

Serebrennikov (right in pic) has been prevented from pursuing his busy career at German opera houses. His ballet on the life of Nureyev was staged at the Bolshoi without his involvement.
