Sergei Filin And The Complex, Terrible Society Of The Bolshoi
"Sometimes an institution has an uncanny way of embodying the society to which it belongs. ... So it is at the pinnacles of Russian dance. Since the nineteenth century, the country's two principal stages--the Mariinsky, in St. Petersburg, and the Bolshoi, in Moscow--have acted as microcosms of imperial Russia, Soviet Russia, and, now, Vladimir Putin's Russia."
