Wayne McGregor’s choreography for Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, scheduled for the work’s 100th anniversary in March, has been indefinitely postponed by the Bolshoi.
The reason given is the acid attack on artistic director Sergei Filin. The underlying concern is that is may be unsafe for foreign artists to work at the Bolshoi until the causes of the attack are clarified.
The production was to have been screened in hundreds of cinemas worldwide.
