Several Royal Ballet dancers refuse Russia tripmain
Two members of the Royal Ballet – so far unnamed – have opted out of a six-night residency at the Bolshoi, over Russia’s anti-gay laws.
A defensive Covent Garden statement said: ‘Out of the 96-strong dancers in The Royal Ballet, just two dancers have chosen not to go on tour to Moscow for political reasons.’
It added: ‘A handful of others are not going for family or other reasons.’
So how many altogether have refused?
