Macabre maestro humour from the Bolshoi

This comes our way from a Moscow insider:

Two members of the Bolshoi staff are discussing the candidates for chief conductor.

What do you think about Vladimir Jurowski?, – asks one of them. - Well?

He is good, – answers another.- But he is obviously too busy, has a lot of obligations and that’s why it will be hardly possible.

Then may be his younger brother Dimitry?

He is still too young, not experienced enough.

Then maybe their father Mikhail?

Oh, no! Impossible – I am sure he is a Jew.
