MOSCOW, July 18 (Itar-Tass) - The Investigative Committee has launched a check into the death of a violinist in the Bolshoi Theatre, the SK press service told Itar-Tass.
"The SK is conducting a pre-investigation check into the death of Bolshoi Theatre violinist Viktor Sedov. A procedural decision will follow," an SK representative said.
On July 16, Sedov entered into an unlit room of the orchestra pit assuming that the pit floor was at the ground floor level, and fell from a six-meter height. "A Bolshoi Theatre staffer found Sedov unconscious on the concrete floor as he was making a routine fire prevention check. The victim was rushed to the Sklifosovsky emergency medicine hospital. Despite the doctors’ efforts, he died on July 17, reports said.
Viktor Sedov, 65, worked at the Bolshoi Theatre for more than 40 years.
GABT spokeswoman Katerina Novikova said the GABT personnel were mourning Sedov. "His colleagues loved and respected him. We're all shocked by the tragedy," Novikova said.
New GABT director general Vladimir Urin has already met with the musician's family.
Sedov will be buried in the Vostryakovo cemetery next week. GABT said it would provide financial assistance to the violinist's family.
