LA Rothbart is alleged mastermind of attack on Bolshoi director

News out of Moscow on the horrific acid attack against Bolshoi artistic director Sergei Filin, and the prime suspect — even confessing  on Russian television — is a principal dancer with the company. The alleged ringleader is Pavel Dmitrichenko, who appeared as Rothbart in “Swan Lake” in June 2012, when the Bolshoi Ballet appeared in a sold-out engagement at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. The Los Angeles Times has a story today, with quotes from my review. Read the Times story here and my original review here.
