More bad news for Bolshoi lovers:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Mr Fadeyechev was asked to quit after speaking out against plans announced by the Bolshoi Theatre's new artistic director, Gennady Rozhdestvensky, the world-famous conductor, to drop productions central to the company's touring schedule. Mr Rozhdestvensky, 69, who spends most of his time conducting abroad, has left Russia to continue his foreign engagements, suggesting that anyone wanting to discuss the changes should drop him an e-mail. He will be away from Russia until next month, leaving the company rudderless as it struggles through one of the most traumatic shake-ups in its 224-year history.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>The author of the piece does not seem to know about the improvements which have taken place under Fadeyechev.<P><BR><A HREF="http://www.telegraph.co.uk/et?ac=003319252016647&rtmo=aqJu6C6J&atmo=tttttttd&pg=/et/00/10/1/wbol01.html" TARGET=_blank><B>Now read on</B></A>

If he goes, one wonders how many dancers will go with him or leave at the same time. To date there seems little appreciation of the value of ballet to the new management.

Yep! It's a beaut!<P>'On their toes and trading blows - Russia’s cultural showcase is a snakepit of backstabbing and rumour.

'New man at top plans a great leap forward,' by Andrew Jack in the FT. The article describes the programme to put the Bolshoi back on its feet. Let's hope it works.<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Iksanov says that the days when government bureaucrats influenced the Bolshoi's programme are over. But he stresses that he does not want private sponsors exerting pressure either: "Political influence is a thing of the past."<HR></BLOCKQUOTE> <P><BR> <A HREF="Http://timeoff.ft.com/ft/gx.cgi/ftc?pagename=View&c=Article&cid=FT3Z1TB13KC&live=true" TARGET=_blank>Http://timeoff.ft.com/ft/gx.cgi/ftc?pagename=View&c=Article&cid=FT3Z1TB13KC&live=true</A>
