Breaking: Top Russian conductor walks out on Bolshoimain
Chaos again at the flagship theatre.
The veteran Vladimir Fedoseev has walked out after one rehearsal of Tchaikovsky’s Iolanta, saying the place is not functioning properly.
Anton Grishanin has been summoned as his replacement.
Say what you like about Gergiev, but this does not happen at the Mariinsky.
UPDATE: He’s coming back.
