Bolshoi Ballet Shake-Up

NPR's Michelle Kelemen reports from Moscow on a shake-up at the famed Bolshoi Ballet. An agency of the United Nations is helping to renovate the troupe's theatre, but the government is hoping to speed up the work. Last week, the Bolshoi's artistic and general director was sacked and the troupe was put under control of the Ministry of Culture.
