MOSCOW, September 28 (Itar-Tass) - The general director of Moscow’s Bolshoi Theatre, Vladimir Urin says, he is prepared to let the Bolshoi Ballet’s former soloist, Nikolai Tsiskaridze, appear in Tchaikovsky’s fairy tale ballet Nutcracker to say good-bye to the audience and to the stage of the world-famous building in the heart of Moscow.
“I would be glad to give Tsiskaridze a chance to say farewell to the Bolshoi audience from its stage by appearing in the Nutcracker. That’s normal international practice. All renowned theatres around the world do that,” Urin said.
“No decision on that score has been made yet, though. Negotiations over various technicalities are still in progress,” he added.
Nikolai Tsiskaridze, the holder of the People’s Artist of Russia title, left the Bolshoi on the 30th of last June after spending 21 years with the company. Tsiskaridze’s two effective contracts with the Bolshoi expired on the same day.
Last July Tsiskaridze said that he was unable to say anything for certain about his future.
“I have no plans for now. I am on vacation. I have not filed any job applications yet,” he said.
