MOSCOW, August 12 (Itar-Tass) - Sergei Filin, artistic director of the Bolshoi Theatre, arrived in London where the Bolshoi ballet gives guest performances. Bolshoi ballet’s premier dancer Ruslan Skvortsov confirmed the news about Filin’s arrival in London to the newspaper Izvestia on Monday. There is no information about Filin’s arrival in London on the Bolshoi website yet.

This is the first time Filin left the clinic in the German city of Aachen where he was undergoing treatment after being subjected to the acid attack in January. Investigators suspect Bolshoi ballet leading soloist Pavel Dmitrichenko of having organized the attack.

The new director-general of the Bolshoi Theatre, Vladimir Urin, met with Sergei Filin on August 1. Urin then denied reports that the Bolshoi’s artistic director would go to London.

The guest performances of the Bolshoi on the Covent Garden stage will last till August 17. On the tour’s programme are George Balanchine’s ballet Jewels, the ballet Swan Lake, Yuri Grigorovich’s choreography, and Flames of Paris, Alexei Ratmansky’s choreography.
