Banned opera director flees RussiaNews
We understand that the director Kirill Serebrennikov, placed under house arrest and a travel ban three years ago, has left Russia and arrived in Paris. He intends to settle in Germany, where he works for several state opera houses.
Serebrennikov, 52, was falsely accused of embezzling from a Moscow theatre after he unwisely uttered criticisms of the Putin regime.
He has continued his criticisms since the invastion of Ukraine. This anti-propaganda t-shirt reads: ‘I turned off the TV’.
