Really hope this turns out fine, although it doesn't look good.

Oh, I hope so too. I thought the Moscow Stanislavsky had hands down the best Swan Lake I had ever seen performed when they came to visit SF.

I hope they find him!

This is very strange. Has there been no sign of him since July? What are the company doing in the meantime?

Does anyone know what happened in the case of the Moscow Stanislavsky's director. I recall reading that he disappeared last summer -- was he ever found?

"... was he ever found?"

You are asking about Dmitry Bryantsev, Mehunt.
No, he has not been found. Since the search and investigation are continuing nobody can be appointed on his post as the Artistic Director. Therefore, the Stanislavsky Ballet is being managed now by the collective group of the company's ballet masters and teachers.

What is certain is that Mr. Briantsev, 57, the artistic director of Moscow's Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Ballet, stepped out of his hotel near Wenceslas Square in Prague on June 28 and has not been seen since.

This news was broadcasted yesterday, so it is not a 1 April joke:

"...The body of choreographer Dmitry Bryantsev was found in the abandoned car in the forest near Prague..."

The news was published here:
NTV.RU

It is in Russian so if anyone wants to read it, use online translators as I'm no good at it.

It is very, very sad... He was a great guy!

Thanks maracas for posting this sad news. The Stanislavsky Ballet are welcome regular visitors here in the UK and that success and many others will serve as a tribute to Dmitry Bryantsev.

Yes, he was married twice and he was father to three (officially) children. The youngest is something like four or three. Poor boy!

But I can not to find a confirmation from the Russian Consulate in Prague. All other information agencies did not report this news as well. Even though that original report came from the biggest TV company in Russia, there is a tiny possibility that he is alive. They say it is something to do with hotel property buisiness in which Bryantsev was involved.

Here's a translation straight from babelfish:

At the end of June Bryantsev left to Czechia and did not return. From 25 June the creative association of musical theater left to the summer vacations. During the same day the artistic leader of the ballet group of theater Dmitriy Bryantsev departed into Prague. Return he had to in five days. About the purpose of trip no one knew nothing.

On 30 June, as it was previously stipulated, the management of theater sent into Sheremet'yevo Airport official automobile. Driver met the voyage, on which had to arrive flying Bryantsev,; however, it among the passengers it did not prove to be. Without warning Of Bryantsev it could not remain in Prague, since immediately after return it had to begin the rehearsals of new ballet. On 8 July it planned to leave with the family for leisure for Turkey.

The management of theater and the relatives Of Bryantseva sounded alarm and during the same day reported its disappearance into the Russian embassy in Prague and the Czech police. In Czechia Dmitriy Bryantsev was declared in the national search.

As reports MK, the corpse Of Bryantseva was discovered in the deserted to the scaffolding machine. According to some data, of the murder suspects the partner Of Bryantseva in the hotel business, to the encounter with which he arrived. Specifically, to it he had to transmit the large sum of money. In the Russian embassy in Czechia there are no no data whatever about the fact that Bryantsev is found.

Dmitriy Bryantsev

Dmitriy Bryantsev was borne in 1947 in Leningrad. Artist, ballet master. People artist OF THE RSFSR since 1989.

At the end LKHU in 1966-1977 - soloist of choreographic concert ensemble young ballet. In 1977 finished the baletmeysterskiy department Of gITISa.

Reputation to it brought works on "lentelefil'me" with the participation by Ekaterina maksimovoy: the original teles-ballet of "etiquette" and the "old tango" of Kogan, in which he stated about itself as about khoreografe of comic plan. Among other known works Of Bryantseva - "Salome" and "sulamif'", and also "spectral ball" to Chopin's music.

The most significant work - play "optimistic tragedy", it is spoken in the article of the encyclopedia "Russian ballet".

I found this interview with Dmitri Bryantsev on the BBC site whilst researching something else.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainmen ... 727416.stm

His final sentiment is chillingly ironic given the dreadful circumstances of his death:

Quote:
"Educate a person," he says, "and there will be less chance of them going off and killing somebody and more chance that they will respect other people's lives."

From Ismene Brown's Blog:

The first victim of the Russian ballet world to fall victim to that country's rampant criminality, sadly he won't be the last.

Ismene writes 2004, I think she meant to write 2005.
