RUSSIA : Bolshoi Director Suffers Acid Attack; Sight Endangered.


      Moscow doctors are fighting to save the sight of Sergei Filin, 42...artistic director of the famed Bolshoi Ballet...after an acid attack by a masked man outside his apartment.
     'I got scared. I thought he was going to shoot me,' said Filin.
     Since taking over the Bolshoi in 2011...Filin has moved productions from mainly classical works...to new innovative productions.
