NEW YORK (AP) — Cate Blanchett, a Kabuki theater company from Japan and the full force of the mighty Bolshoi's ballet, opera, chorus and orchestra companies will be the highlights of this summer's Lincoln Center Festival.
A leading ballerina with the Bolshoi Ballet says she wants to stay in Canada after receiving threats _ a move that follows an acid attack on the dance troupe's ballet chief and highlights tensions at the famed theater.
The Bolshoi ballet on Tuesday named a former prima ballerina to fill in for artistic director Sergei Filin, whose face and eyes were burned in an acid attack.
Stepanenko said she would fulfill Filin's plans and stick to his chosen repertoire, beginning with the opening of La Bayadere on Thursday.
Asked by journalists about intrigue and infighting at the Bolshoi, she said the ballet company was composed of many "brilliant, very diverse, very talented people."
