Bolshoi eliminates star directorNews
The Bolshoi Theatre has cancelled a May revival of Kirill Serebrennikov’s 2015 ballet production A Hero of Our Time.
The reason? ‘After February 24, 2022, Kirill Serebrennikov repeatedly made anti-war statements. In March 2022, the director left Russia.’
Is Gergiev running the Bolshoi yet?
Gergiev Is ay Mariinsky Theatre.
Are we surprised? Just check out his thoughts on Russia in his recent productions in the west.
Better to him
He left Russia on March 2022. The Bolshoi Theater is a state theater whose budget is taxpayers’ money.
His “anti-war statements” was the decisive reason, but in reality he is just a thief and an unprofessional. Officials, as always, lack a reason, and corrupt judges lack evidence.
In total, 200,000,000 rubles (about $2,500,000) were stolen from taxpayers’ money (in 2014-2014, years before the 2022′ events).
In his current status, anti-war statements are not about “peace and love” but an attempt to build a career that he will never have outside of Russia. Only here it was possible not to pay taxes for years and “legitimately” steal money from budgetary cultural institutions.
correction: about stealing money – from 2011 to 2014
All the best ballet talent left Russia. With the cost of this war, it is shocking they can still mount productions there.
