And to Tahor, referring to a person as a god is a very scary thought. There are many talented artists in Moscow, the difference between those that become stars and those that don't is simply a matter of money, and the connections one has to give the money to, period. Visiting Moscow is not the same as living here.
By way of a correction, I said that Nikolai is worshipped in Moscow by other people as if he were a God, people's reactions to him are as such. That is not the same as saying he is a God.
What I said was clear, what you keep repeatedly saying is not. You are constantly making suggestions that Nikolai has bribed his way up to achieve his present status. The truth is Nikolai was plucked from the corps at a young age by Grigorovitch who recognised his talent, not the colour of his money. After all at that time he did not have any. He was living humbly in a one room bed sit with his mother. It is nonsense to suggest that in Nikolai's case it was through corruption.
Clearly I don't live in moscow but believe me I am fully aware of the way corruption works in Russia. It is used as a weapon upon successful people by their detractors who claim corruption and bribery even when someone has been successful based on merit. The truth is that whilst some people undoubtedly get to where they are in Moscow through money and corruption, some people in fact get there through art and through merit, as in the case of Nikolai. Otherwise your argument would suggest that by default everyone in Moscow achieving a position of success has done so through money alone - if that is your argument it must include all the other great artists you mention from Moscow's past such as Vasiliev, maybe it also includes you! That is the logic of your argument.
In truth Nikolai's dancing has nothing at all to do with money, and everything to do with talent.
