A senior violinist at Russia’s Bolshoi theatre has died after falling into the orchestra pit below the stage.

Viktor Sedov had played for the famous Moscow theatre’s opera and ballet shows for forty years.

The Russian company has been at the centre of lugubrious headlines this year after an acid-attack almost blinded the ballet’s director.
