New Leadership For Bolshoi Theatre?

There are rumors the Bolshoi Drama Theatre might get new leadership. It’s long overdue, as recent productions prove. “After Georgy Tovstonogov’s death in 1980, an adequate replacement was not found, and it was decided that the new artistic director would concentrate his efforts on preserving the legacy of the late legendary director. The most important thing was not to ruin the house that Tovstonogov built. Now, that house has become old, feeble and fragile. After being denied fresh blood and any new influence at all for so many years, the BDT troupe finds itself in an unappealing state of stagnation.”
