“What would I say to myself young when I just got there? Go. Do not be afraid. Never look back. Don’t be dull. In no case. Save your face and always strive for the truth. Which I did. I will not change a single day spent in this theater. I will always be on my knees before talent. I won’t even blink in front of dullness. “
As the artist noted, he will never change his decisions. “My teacher also told me when I went against the opinion of the majority. “Well done. Serve only Apollo. ” The Bolshoi Theater is crowned with Apollo, ”said Nikolai Tsiskaridze.
Recall that Nikolai Tsiskaridze was the premier of the Bolshoi Theater for many years. He left in 2013 after the expiration of his employment contract. The ballet dancer often found himself in unpleasant situations, but he always adhered only to his point of view, not being led by anyone.
