The newspaper Izvestia reports that Vorontsova, who is Dmitrichenko's girlfriend, asked the ballet chief Filin in December to cast her as the lead in "Swan Lake," but Filin turned her down, making disparaging comments about her weight and choice of teachers. Ballet critics concur on the extra pounds and note that Filin then gives the ballerina a major role in the showcase ballet "The Nutcracker."   (AP Photo/Alexander Zemlianichenko)
