Bolshoi soloist Pavel Dmitrichenko listens in a courtroom in Moscow,  Russia, Thursday, March 7, 2013. The 29-year-old soloist admits to organizing the attack, but tells a Moscow court Thursday that he never intended for it to cause such harm to Filin. In his most famous roles the dancer plays villainous or violent men, and his new real-life role adds a creepiness factor to the photographs of him leaping across the stage with a dagger or sword in hand.  Dmitrichenko says he was angry at Filin for what he describes as corruption and favoritism at the theater, while reports have played up his relationship with a young ballerina who feels she has been unfairly passed over for starring roles.
