MOSCOW, July 9 (Itar-Tass) - Director General of the Bolshoi, Anatoly Iksanov who took the reign of the world-famous theatrical company in 2000 is quitting the post ahead of the formal expiry of the contract, which is due sometime in 2014, the Moscow-based daily Izvestia writes in its Tuesday issue.
In 2000, Iksanov replaced in the Director General’s position the former Bolshoi ballet megastar, Vladimir Vassilyev.
Sources close to the Ministry of Culture told Itar-Tass in the meantime there are four potential candidates for the Director General’s office - the former minister of culture Mikhail Shvydkoi, who is a deputy chairman of the Bolshoi Board of Trustees, the chairman of the Board of Trustees Executive Committee, Alexander Budberg, the incumbent director of the Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Music Theater /Moscow’s opera and ballet company number two - Itar-Tass/, Vladimir Urin, and Vladimir Vassilyev.
