The Bolshoi Theatre on Monday presented its new musical director who has been appointed to help restore the tarnished reputation of the scandal-ridden theatre.Tugan Sokhiev, a 36-year-old conductor who studied in Saint Petersburg, is currently musical director of the Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse (ONCT) and of the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin (DSO Berlin).He became the musical director of the ONCT in Toulouse in southwestern France in 2008, while in 2012 he took up the same position at the DSO Berlin.Under the terms of his four-year contract with the Bolshoi, Sokhiev will only be conducting its orchestra next season so he can honour his obligations with other orchestras.
