The music director and chief conductor of the Bolshoi theatre, Vassily Sinaisky, has quit, the theatre's spokeswoman said Monday, the latest blow to befall the legendary theatre.
Sinaisky presented his letter of resignation to the Bolshoi's director, Vladimir Urin, and it was accepted, spokeswoman Yekaterina Novikova told AFP.
The decision is effective immediately, she said.
Sinaisky, who has been the Bolshoi's leading conductor since 2010, was due to conduct Verdi's opera "Don Carlos", which is premiering at the theatre in two weeks.
