A picture taken on October 28, 2011, shows the Bolshoi ballet's artistic director, Sergei Filin (R), sitting together with then President Dmitry Medvedev's wife, Svetlana (C), and Bolshoi's choreographer Yuri Grigorovich (L), as they attend a gala opening of the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow. Forty-two-year old Filin, an acclaimed former dancer appointed artistic director in 2011, suffered third-degree burns to his face, head and eyes last week when a masked man cornered him near his house in central Moscow and threw acid in his face. The vicious attack may cost Sergei Filin his eyesight, Moscow police said yesterday. AFP PHOTO/ RIA-NOVOSTI/ POOL/ VLADIMIR RODIONOV (Photo credit should read VLADIMIR RODIONOV/AFP/Getty Images)
