Fired Bolshoi Ballerina Sues Director

The ballerina fired by the Bolshoi last year after being told she was “too fat” by the director, is suing for $1 million. She had already won reinstatement to the company from the court, but her attorney says she wants money and a public apology. “We believe that remarks made by the Bolshoi Theater director offend the honor, dignity and business reputation of my client.”
